Dr Michael Calleja LL.D - Vice-President Academy/Secretary
Dr. Michael Calleja, 29, is an Advocate who graduated Doctor of Laws in 2012 and Master of Laws (Leuven, Belgium) in 2013. Michael was a founding member of Swieqi United back in 2009. An active citizen in Swieqi, Michael has always put the interests of the Swieqi community before anything else, has worked closely with other football clubs and the local council and has also laboured hard to ensure that Swieqi is well represented in the sporting sphere (as evident through his firm belief in the Swieqi Sports Association).
He is currently in his ninth tenure at the club where he currently occupies the role of Vice-President for the Technical wing. Michael attended Saint Aloysius’ College, Birkirkara and participated in programmes such as Young Enterprise, Euroscuola and World Youth Day (2005) which provided him valuable experience.
Having worked with a law firm for some time before spending a year abroad, Michael then spent approximately four years at the Malta Financial Services Authority where he focused primarily on Corporate Law. He now works as a Lawyer and Compliance Manager with Dr. Werner & Partner [based in Sliema]. He considers his main hobby to be travelling where he likes to indulge himself in watching big European teams play.
He is an avid Manchester United fan, but he also enjoys Rugby Union and is a staunch follower of New Zealand's All Blacks.
