The MGA also added that prior to stepping into the office, the new CEO will spend several weeks shadowing Brincat.

Brincat also commented on his departure, saying that the decision to leave didn’t come easy.

Leaving the MGA is a very hard decision to make. The past 9 years have been a rollercoaster of experiences which contributed to the person I am today, and it has been a privilege to lead the Authority for the past 3 years.
