Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat Joins The Stars Group CEO Rafi Ashkenazi In Office Opening
New office space accommodates up to 350 staff
ONCHAN, Isle of Man – August 2, 2017 – The Stars Group Inc. (Nasdaq: TSG; TSX: TSGI) has relocated its Malta office to a new location to accommodate its growing presence on the island, which is a member of the European Union. Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat was The Stars Group’s guest of honour today at the opening ceremony in Spinola Bay.
The Stars Group’s current workforce in Malta stands at around 270 staff, having grown from just a handful of employees in 2012, and the new office space can accommodate significantly more in anticipation of future growth. The Stars Group’s Malta staff, who come from more than 30 countries, work across a variety of departments servicing Stars brands, including business development, marketing, human resources and IT. There are approximately 32 open vacancies, which can be seen here.
The Honourable Joseph Muscat said: "The last decade has seen Malta emerge as a global igaming destination. It’s a great honour to host a global brand such as The Stars Group, which has had stellar success. The Stars Group employs Maltese residents and expats, and the further growth of the company with the new office will complement economic growth here in Malta. Malta is a prime jurisdiction for igaming and we will continue to be vigilant with growing trends, provide education to fit, and keep in close contact with stakeholders."
The new office features a games room, a large terraced area, and a creative space for brainstorming. The building complex is due for full completion by the end of the year and will see a host of new communal facilities available for staff, including a food court, gym, supermarket and children’s crèche.
Rafi Ashkenazi, CEO of The Stars Group, said: "The Stars Group’s continued growth is a great sign that we are delivering on our goal to become the world’s favourite igaming destination. Malta provided a warm welcome to us in 2012 and we’re proud to renew our commitment as we look to welcome new recruits into The Stars Group family here in Malta."
