General Management

Kevin-Jude Paris – Managing Director

Kevin was born in 1970 and was employed with FTI in 1990 as an Assistant Accountant working in close liaison and reporting to the Managing Director. He started his career developing various software systems to control the checking of invoices received from suppliers in addition to general accounting responsibilities. Throughout the years he has been instrumental in the creation, development and modifications of many systems which to this day continue to prove effective to the Company.

Kevin was promoted to Accounts Manager in December 1994, a position in which he continued to play a supporting role to the Company Managing Director and working hard at attaining the objectives of the Company and the FTI Group as a whole.

In July 1999 Kevin was promoted to General Manager where he took on the day to day management of the Company ensuring its smooth operation. Following the restructuring of the Company in 2007, Kevin’s experience and loyalty to the company led him to the position of Managing Director of FTIAS.

Kevin graduated in Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from Henley Business School in 2011.

Kevin is passionate about sports especially racquet sports, his favourite being tennis, but he also enjoys table tennis and squash. Over the last few years he started following rugby which he describes as really intriguing, but, as he honestly admits, he limits himself to watching rugby either at the Hibs stadium when Malta is playing, or on TV!
