Fabian Demicoli

Interview with Mario Debono – Managing Director of Alpha Pharma

 Why did you become an entrepreneur? I became an entrepreneur because my family has been entrepreneurs for generations. Another reason is that I have a problem with  working for people. I always believe that the creation of value by running a business is not just beneficial to myself, but to the families of employees and ultimately the country.

 

How have you come to chose your line of business?

I failed as a medical student. So I did the next best thing. I chose the medical business because it's a fascinating business. The building side of the business is however in the blood!

Where did you go on your last holiday?

Paris. It's such a fantastic city. But nothing beats London. It's a city for everyone. I feel so alive there.

What is your earliest memory?

My earliest memory is going with my father to our quarry for the first time, and being fascinated by the machinery.

If you could chose to be someone famous who would you be?

I would like to have been a combination of the artistic Picasso and the creative innovation of Steve Jobs !
