operations management
tutor

“My name is Rosanne Calleja and am currently the Senior Manager in the Import / Export Operations department of Express Trailers Ltd.  

My expertise is in Operations and Human Resource Management built during my 20 plus years with Express Trailers Ltd and in between during my 6 years at Raesch Quarz Malta. I obtained a Master’s degree in Business Management from Henley Business School. I have also obtained a certificate in ‘Train the Trainer’. 

I have always enjoyed teaching and started out by training employees of the company. After graduating, I tutored for a few years with MBS. Through MBS, I have had excellent tutors and mentors and I appreciate how much their support and guidance have contributed to my growth. They would listen, provide me with help while challenging me to learn and explain things in a way that led to understanding. Today, these are the qualities I use when I teach and tutor.” 

steven gouder

Intorduction to business
tutor

Steven has been involved in Business for the past forty years. The first sixteen were spent with the family business, which was a small import, distribution and retail operation. This is where he learnt to manage the different aspects of running a business. His next career move was joining Time International (today known as Hudson Holdings), where he managed a high-end watch business. After two years he left Time to join a logistics company but two years later re-joined Time and ended up in Algeria to open and run a high-end watch business there. During his stay, he successfully convinced Nike to give Time the contract for the distribution of the brand in Algeria, and lived there for three years until he set up and grew the business. Nike then gave Time the distribution rights for Tunisia and Morocco, which also fell under Steven’s responsibility. This way, Time now controlled most of North Africa and was aiming to grow their reach to more African countries. Today Hudson controls the distribution of Nike in thirty-eight countries in Africa. 

Eleven years later he decided to find another challenge, and joined Rimus Riley Group in Malta, and managed the Trading arm of the company, with over a thousand clients in the food sector. Here Steven learnt all about the food business, as well as heavy involvement in the creation of systems to monitor and control the business through IT, since the FMCG industry is very data driven.  

Steven’s next step was to join Salvo Grima Group, the largest ship chandelling company in Malta. The company had bought a Dutch company close to Rotterdam, and he joined Vladex BV as Senior Commercial Manager, and after a year took over as  General Manager. In the 2 years as GM he re-engineered the company, and also created new projects for the future. After the two years, he was given the task as Group Project manager to launch new projects which are eCommerce based.  

Steven has already taught at MBS for two years but due to travel commitments, he had to take a sabbatical. Now that he is back in Malta he has decided to come back to teaching as it is a passion of his.  

His main hobbies are Crossfit where he is a Trainer, kayaking and pistol shooting. 

Steven is also an MBA graduate of Henley, having graduated through the MBS in 2013.
