“We are today celebrating the achievements of a Maltese company that has evolved into a global success story,” said Gonzi.
Recalling his previous official opening of EC New York in Times Square in 2009, he said he could not believe how strong and proud he felt “witnessing such a strong show of Malta’s potential”. Gonzi added, “As a company, you fly the Maltese flag high… Your success is our success.”
Starting out as a one-school operation in Malta, EC now teaches in 15 locations around the world, offering a range of courses aimed at seasonal to business or academic students.
“We are all extremely proud of EC’s success as an international yet home-grown brand,” commented Andrew Mangion, Executive Chairman of the company (which was originally started by his mum). “I believe it is the strong core values that we all share here that have allowed us to achieve our purpose of ‘helping students succeed in a global community’.”
The new stylish HQ will house up to 100 staff at peak times and is located close to the EC Malta school in St Julians. EC is undoubtedly a Maltese success story, teaching around 40,000 students this year.
