Vella joined Acroud in August 2019 as financial controller before being promoted to the role of head of finance in April of last year.
Prior to this, Vella was a manager at PricewaterhouseCoopers Malta for seven years, while she also holds an Honours degree in Accounting from the University of Malta.
“I am very happy to welcome Tricia in her new role as interim CFO, as we are preparing for an exciting time of rapid growth,” Acroud chief executive Robert Andersson said. “She will form part of the company’s group management.”
Attard stepped down as CFO on 7 December to pursue another career opportunity. It was agreed that he would remain with the business until early March 2023 to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities.
He took on the role in November 2021 after initially joining the business as head of finance in July 2020. Attard also previously worked for Highlight Media Group, KPMG Malta and KPMG Channel Islands.
Acroud said a recruitment process for a permanent CFO is in progress.
