Angele Giuliano

Angele Giuliano

Director
[email protected]

Angele is the entrepreneur behind AcrossLimits. She was barely out of University when she decided she could make a difference to the IT industry. After a few challenging years she fell in love with European projects and the great world out there, and set about changing her company from a small Malta-based firm, to an innovative research SME.

Angele is normally seen in high heels and with a smile on her face. Her tongue-in-cheek humour and positive attitude has helped the company move forward even when things got tough with the crisis and all. Her background in innovation (read ‘crazy ideas’) has given birth to many of our projects.

Angele speaks fluent Maltese, English and Italian and can be contacted most easily via email or Whatsapp.

Jacqueline Bugeja

Jacqueline Bugeja

General Manager
[email protected]

Jacqueline is the motor behind all day-to-day operations at AcrossLimits. She deals with all number crunching aspects of projects and clients and everyone, (including Angele!), understands that her word is law when it comes to money.
Her path to working in finance has been an extremely winding one! She originally studied sciences as she wanted to become a doctor of medicine, but she shelved this dream after a while. She then worked with large local organisations like AirMalta and MIM before making AcrossLimits her home.

Her hobbies are mainly reading fantasy books, and crafts – anything from crochet to egg-decorating. She has a number of pets that include tropical fish, water turtles and fresh-water shrimps.

Maryrose Francica

Maryrose Francica

EU Project Manager
[email protected]

Maryrose is in charge of European Projects within AcrossLimits. She’s almost part of the fabric as she’s been with the company for over 12 years now – and she’s our most frequent flyer – with eventful and funny incidents wherever she goes.

Maryrose has entrepreneurship at heart and a love for educational or social projects. Her work allows her to make a difference to both areas, and even though she is sometimes faced with academics and mad scientists, her practical approach has always garnered respect and people stop to listen. She has a wide network of contacts throughout Europe and beyond, and networking is as part of her as is breathing
Her idea of relaxation is reading a good book, or enjoying great food surrounded by friends or family. Maryrose is fiercely patriotic towards Malta, although from all the countries she’s visited, Ireland has always had a special place in her heart!

Kerry Freeman

Kerry Freeman

TrainingMalta Manager
[email protected]

Kerry is in charge of training and events within AcrossLimits. She also participates in some European projects, especially those dealing with education and vulnerable groups – for example early school leavers and children with dyslexia.

Originally from Australia, although her parents are both Maltese, she felt the pull and moved to Malta when her kids were young. She still in fact speaks English with the soft Aussie lilt, and thus often lends her voice to promotional videos done in the company.

Kerry enjoys swimming, trekking and walking with her beautiful dogs whilst taking photos of the Maltese countryside. She enjoys energy drinks at all hours of the day or night, giving her the wings she needs to fly through her day.

Annalise Duca

Annalise Duca

Technology Manager
[email protected]

Annalise heads the technical department within AcrossLimits. She has been with the company for more than 10 years, starting as a student and steadily working her way up. Her forthright manner and no-panic attitude have helped to solve many technical challenges throughout the years.

Annalise has a love for design and an eye for detail, and is the inspiration behind the company’s print and web elements. Her loud laughter can be heard from miles away and she is an inspiration to girls out there who want a career in IT without losing their feminine side.

Annalise’s hobbies include diving, shopping and planning parties for friends and family.

Peter Meadley

Peter Meadley

Senior Developer
[email protected]

Peter is one of our assets in the technical department, specialising in Computer Games Development and Web Application Development. While studying at the University of Abertay in Dundee, Scotland, he worked on multiple projects on a wide variety of different platforms.

Peter’s work experience includes the development of educational applications and games, development of real time applications for the entertainment and finance world, social networking tools and content management systems for sports and health companies. Peter builds video games, mobile applications, web systems and other solutions in a large range of different languages using numerous tools, frameworks and engines.

Away from work, he plays handball, likes gardening, and always smiles before saying something funny!

Davide Platania

Davide Platania

Developer
[email protected]

Since he was a little child Davide was, and still is, fascinated by the possibility to communicate with others, be they humans, animals… or computers! This was in fact the very passion which drove Davide towards the study of programming languages: to be able to “explain” to machines how to bring all the crazy ideas that kept popping up in his brain to life.

Apart from programming, he also loves playing video games, reading, practicing meditation and travelling, thereby continuously increasing his knowledge of different languages and cultures and meeting people from all around the world. Davide is Italian and, on a daily basis, asks one of the team to teach him a phrase or a word in Maltese!

Sarah Suda

Sarah Suda

Sustainability Support & Trainer
[email protected]

Sarah is a business and technology consultant with a focus on digital products and technologies and a keen interest on how these are adopted and used by consumers and businesses. She has worked in the tech industry for 12 years and has had the opportunity to work in different areas including software project management and requirements analysis, market research and analysis, competitor analysis and product marketing and product management.

She started her career at the helm of a web development agency.  She subsequently worked on a number of omni channel retail e-commerce projects for a number of global retail brands before moving into retail innovation with Boots UK digital innovation hub, where she worked on a number of retail and digital health prototype concepts for the business. She also worked in the London tech startup scene with Babylon Health, a health tech startup offering a digital healthcare mobile application. Sarah sits between tech and business, understanding the makings of a good product, how to understand customers, and how it all fits into the market landscape.

When not working, Sarah is involved in several non-profit initiatives and also loves the arts, especially theatre. She’s also an avid traveller and a yogi.

Pierre Sammut

Pierre Sammut

Financial and EU Project Consultant
[email protected]

Pierre enjoys financial management, which is daunting to many, but comes naturally to him. He works on putting structure in projects and companies in order to optimise the efficient use of resources
Pierre’s background is varied, spanning telecoms companies, cultural heritage institutions, retail chains and health and educational organisations. He has a serious difficulty in saying no, which is why he ends up with the most challenging projects that sometimes require total restructuring. With AcrossLimits he participates in areas related to business planning and development within projects that deal with primary and tertiary economic sectors.

Pierre is also a born shopper: he enjoys hunting for good quality products whether it’s a sports watch or a tailored suit. He’s an AC Milan fan which means that he gets teased a lot in the office when they do badly (which thankfully for him is not so often!)

Steve Robertshaw

Steve Robertshaw

Senior Sustainability & Policy Consultant
[email protected]

Steve is old. And grumpy. The first computers he got his hands on were not PCs. The first code he cut was not even OO. Since then he has gone from pseudo code and writing compilers to developing technology policy and technology strategy at the national and international levels.

Steve has worked in academia, small business, large business and government long enough to know that he does not like politics of any kind. He originates from the north of England where words are precious and used sparingly and questions receive short, sometimes blunt, answers. If you don’t like what you hear, he is more than happy to debate with you. And even if there’s a gang of you, he is stupid enough to not back down if he believes that right is on his side. This mix of personality disorders means that clients often call on Steve to solve
thorny problems.

Steve currently focuses on three main technical areas: High Performance Computing, Artificial intelligence & Machine Reasoning, and Novel Software Architectures. He is regularly appointed by the EC in expert roles for these areas. He also knows a thing or two about Cyber Security, Informatics and Technology Transfer. He is a business mentor. His hobby is Ontology, even the misguided forms. His heroes are WVO Quine, CS Pierce and Noam Chomsky.

Steve doesn’t care if he is colour coordinated or not, he cuts his hair when it annoys him, and only sometimes irons his shirts. Unable to safely climb mountains and run marathons any more, Steve spends his spare time listening to dreadful music, eating curry and sitting in traffic jams.

Kim Busuttil

Kim Busuttil

EU Project Assistant
[email protected]

Kim works on our European projects focusing mostly on those with a social or educational element. Her academic background is European Studies and Law. University taught her to always set up tangible goals and timelines. Kim loves studying, albeit she believes that the greatest lessons are learnt away from the school bench.

Her dissertation, which was based on EU mobility programmes and youth employability, was awarded the Best Dissertation Award in 2016 by the Institute for European Studies at The University of Malta.

A very special experience for her was volunteering in Cambodia. She was part of a team that provided support to the evolving community in order for it to become self-sustained and empowered. This experience has led her to become more aware of the insular tendencies of us Europeans and has made her want to work towards enlightening others of the fact that we do not live in a bubble, and that whatever we do will contribute to a global cycle: both positively and negatively.

Kim is a lover of coffee, with an affinity to travel, poetry, Johnny Cash and good food.

Anna Maria Darmanin

Anna Maria Darmanin

Digital Agenda and European Policy Consultant
[email protected]

Anna Maria works mostly from Brussels although she is also often zooming around different European countries. She focuses on issues related to digital agenda, education, entrepreneurship and social affairs.

Anna’s background is quite eclectic having been an entrepreneur herself with companies in areas related to business management, environmental services and training. She is also one of the Maltese representatives in Brussels for the Economic and Social Committee, having also been Vice President for Communications of the same institution for a couple of years. Within AcrossLimits she helps in the creation and management of projects whilst doing desk-based research on a multitude of areas.
Anna Maria is a fashion guru. Her style is unmistakable and she favours Italian designers above all others. She is also a commercial skipper and spends lots of time sailing around islands in the Mediterranean and beyond, whilst dreaming up new ideas for a better world.
