‘As we celebrate our 50th Anniversary, we must be anticipating the next 50 years. We have to ensure we have the foundation to continually anticipate shifts in the market. We must continue to grow, change, and innovate, taking what has been positive and strong about our history and culture – and pioneer the future of the real estate industry in Malta, adapting to a world in which change is accelerating around us exponentially.” This was one of the key messages that company Chairman Frank shared with a 1000+ guest list at Frank Salt Real Estate’s 50-year anniversary party, held at the majestic Fort St Angelo in Vittoriosa.
The event gathered past employees, notaries, lawyers, developers, clients and the current 200+ team, who mingled together on a hot summer night, against the backdrop of the stunning Valletta bastions and marina.
The scale of the celebration, which was coordinated by company director Douglas Salt, included an immersive brand installation where LED panels displayed imagery gathered from Frank Salt Real Estate’s 50-year journey, a green carpet of light which led the way to the fortifications, a stand up reception, and entertainment by some of Malta’s top talent, was unprecedented.
On the occasion, a beautiful portrait made of Mr Frank Salt by artist Edoardo La Francesca was also unveiled followed by an emotional speech by Frank Salt. “A lot of merit towards our successful company is thanks to the great workforce we’ve had over the years, but I must not forget to acknowledge the great collaboration which we had over the years and still enjoy today, with notaries, bank managers, architects, developers and why not? Even our competitors in the same business, all thanks to our high ethos of being frank, even at the cost of losing a deal”.
A number of staff who had joined the team back in its early days were also present for the occasion, some still working with the company. “Our company is the people who work for the company and we’ve been so lucky over these years to have so many good people working with us” he added.
The company is marking this special 50th milestone by means of a number of events and initiatives being held throughout this year. A significant project being undertaken by Frank Salt Real Estate includes an investment of over €120,000 at Inspire, where the company is installing solar panels to supply the organisation with free and clean energy. This was highlighted in company director Grahame Salt’s address. “We will also continue to build on the principal of giving something back – today we all know how important the environment is for everyone’s wellbeing and we’ve set up our Let’s Go Environmental campaign to manage just this.“
The overwhelming attendance to this event is testimony to the healthy relationships Frank Salt Real Estate builds with its clients and associates; relationships which are built on trust, integrity and a first-class service.
“Today we are proud market leaders. We are a 200 plus strong team spread across a large office network and we continue to work hard, to offer the service levels our clients have come to expect from us”, concluded Grahame Salt.
