OSM is getting bigger and stronger!

5 new people have recently joined the OSM dream team to bring the total of OSMers to a whooping 14 people. Here is the low-down of who is who:

Daphne Grech Cumbo (Sales & Marketing Manager)

Graduated in Hospitality Management from the Institute of Tourism Studies, Daphne went on to obtain a Degree in Tourism from the University of Malta. She joined the DMC world in 2004 and hasn’t looked back since! Besides from the native tongue Maltese, Daphne also speaks French, Spanish, Italian and English. Her passion for the Maltese Islands shines through with her acquired marketing skills, and her love for the challenging world of organising events!

Frida Palovaara (Conference & Incentive Co-ordinator)

Frida was born in Sweden and came to Malta after having travelled extensively and also lived and worked in England and Spain. Studying Society, Tourism and Cultural programmes, while working in the event and F&B business, broadened Frida’s horizons, to the point where she knows what the Scandinavians want for their programmes in Malta, while speaking her native Swedish, as well as English, adds that personal touch. Her creativity and passion for being outdoors, shine through her work, from the first contact with the client, to the actual days of the event.

Andrea Bonello (Project Manager)

Andrea joined On Site Malta from within the hospitality industry. Having graduated in Hotel Management at the Institute of Tourism Studies and completed a year’s internship in Ireland, as part of his studies, provided Andrea with firsthand knowledge of hotel operations and logistics.  Previously working in a 5 star hotel in Malta, broadened Andrea’s work experience to include events coordination and logistics planning for corporate, leisure and MICE groups. With a keen eye to detail and a hands-on approach for operations and logistics, Andrea is an asset to the OSM team, in handling projects and events.

Elaine Bugeja (Project Manager)

Elaine joined On Site Malta straight out of television production. Her background included the production of discussion programmes and documentaries where she was responsible for the content and all logistics for broadcasting. She has also managed various projects including award ceremonies and fund raising events and also worked in marketing and advertising, both locally and in the UK. With her excellent organizational skills, attention to detail and positive energy, Elaine is surely an asset to the operational area of the company.

Julian Pillow (Project Manager)

Julian joined On Site Malta after a 10 year background within the hospitality industry, in front office and events. Having worked mainly in Malta, Julian’s previous posts in leading brand hotels, allowed him to experience working in Ireland and Italy, therefore gaining firsthand knowledge of foreign markets. His last post before joining the team at On Site was as Events Manager in one of Malta’s 5 star hotels and was mainly responsible for handling MICE related operations. Julian studied at the Institute of Tourism Studies in Malta, which provided a broad overview of the tourism industry in Malta. With a warm welcoming smile and attention to detail, Julian will ensure that any client’s event in Malta is a successful operation!
