Profiles

David Galea
Chief Executive Officer

David brings to the table a wide body of expertise in Business Transformation, Project Management and Change Management, gained from extensive public and private sector experience in process improvement, performance management and organisational effectiveness. A Certified Public Accountant and holding a Masters Degree in Business Administration (with Distinction) from the prestigious University of Warwick, David’s long career as a management consultant spans an array of sectors and projects.

He cut his teeth with a Big Four company, before moving on to the Office of the Prime Minister (Malta), where he was involved in the restructuring of major public organisations. Later high-profile appointments included those of Head of Strategy and Knowledge Management at Malta Enterprise, and the role of General Manager responsible for Financial Control at Air Malta plc. He also served as Non-Executive Chairman for Mount Carmel Hospital in Malta.

In the United Kingdom, David was involved in a variety of Project Management initiatives, including the development of international Project Management Standards for a global oil and gas company, the development of a business case for the consolidation of plutonium contaminated material into a single site, as well as the setting up of a Programme Management Office for a major telecommunications company.

However, it is his involvement in Business Transformation, Project Management and Performance Management assignments that established David’s reputation, and particularly those key BPR and Change Management projects at Maltese blue chip and best-in-class organisations engaged in the utilities, ICT and financial services, as well as in the public sector. David acted as the Programme Director for a multi-billion euro deal involving a long term Power Purchase Agreement and Gas Supply Agreement, the first of its kind on an international scale, bringing together a multi-disciplinary team of international experts using Agile Project Management methodologies to fast-track the project. David also led a number of international commercial negotiations, including a Power Purchase Agreement with Shanghai Electric Power. David is the founder of BEAT, having set up the organisation in 2007.
