Malta Independent - - BUSINESS & FINANCE - Jonathan Caru­ana

Jonathan Caru­ana has been ap­pointed Chief Tech­nol­ogy Of­fi­cer at APS Bank as from 1st Novem­ber, hav­ing pre­vi­ously served as Head of IT. This new po­si­tion, which also in­cludes re­spon­si­bil­i­ties for Dig­i­tal De­vel­op­ment and the Ad­min­is­tra­tive Sup­port func­tions, forms part of a wider man­age­ment re­struc­tur­ing ex­er­cise started ear­lier this year and which is con­tin­u­ing.

Mr Caru­ana joined APS Bank in 1999 and served in var­i­ous ar­eas be­fore mov­ing to IT; he was pro­moted to In­for­ma­tion Sys­tems Man­ager in 2008 and Head of Depart­ment in 2015. Through­out his ca­reer he has been in­volved in the man­age­ment of sev­eral IT pro­jects, most re­cently lead­ing the suc­cess­ful im­ple­men­ta­tion of a new core bank­ing sys­tem. He has qual­i­fi­ca­tions in bank­ing, in­sur­ance, holds a B.Sc. (Hons) in Com­put­ing from the Univer­sity of Green­wich (2009) and M.Sc. in Soft­ware En­gi­neer­ing from the Univer­sity of Hert­ford­shire (2013).

“Over the past 17 years I have grown from a main­stream banker to Busi­ness Analyst, Database and Soft­ware De­vel­oper, So­lu­tions Man­ager, Project Leader, al­ways at the deep-end of crit­i­cal and im­por­tant pro­jects. In my new role I hope to ap­ply my di­verse ex­pe­ri­ence to strengthen the bank’s in­fra­struc­ture and im­prove the dig­i­tal chan­nels. Our strat­egy is to de­velop in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions that will fa­cil­i­tate the cre­ation of prod­ucts and ser­vices to meet the needs of our cus­tomers,” Mr Caruan com­mented about his ap­point­ment.

APS Bank’s CEO Mar­cel Cas­sar, said, “Jonathan has demon­strated com­pe­tence, ma­tu­rity and im­pres­sive or­gan­i­sa­tional skills in the way he has man­aged pro­gres­sively de­mand­ing pro­jects on the Bank’s tech­nol­ogy agenda. He also brings en­ergy and vi­sion to his job. We wish Jonathan well on his pro­mo­tion and are con­fi­dent that his con­tri­bu­tion will con­tinue to be piv­otal for the bank’s de­vel­op­ment.”
