History

MSSEMEA Ltd. started life as the brainchild of the founder and CEO, Mr. Peter G. Mortell as MSS Ltd. in August 2000. MSS was an acronym for Mortell Security Solutions, which later evolved into MSSEMEA Ltd. (Multinational Solutions Specialists, Europe, Middle East & Africa) when the company incorporated in the Republic of Malta in 2015. 

With the Maltese entity in place, Peter embarked on an expansion program of carefully selecting associates that he had historically successfully dealt with, and with the new program in place, MSSEMEA has since been enjoying unprecedented and explosive growth in a variety of core industries and fields.

MSSEMEA’s corporate headquarters are in the Republic of Malta, and we operate in many geographical locations in: Europe; the Middle East; Asia; North America; and Africa, through a network of satellite offices and vested associates.

Peter has a long and varied career in business, initially in hospitality followed by the electronic security sector. Importing equipment from Asia, South Africa and Europe and distributing it through his company in Ireland. As the business developed, so did the product range, evolving in to a product procurement specialist company that is MSSEMEA LIMITED today.

After spending time in North Africa in 2012 and 2013, Peter decided that Malta, being in the EU yet close to the ME and Africa, was the perfect location to operate from, and so in 2015, MSSEMEA Ltd. was incorporated in Malta. As a great believer in the importance of building a solid team, and with a Global Network of contacts and associates.

MSSEMEA, under Peter’s leadership, now has strategic partners and offices around the world, and as part of this global network and alliances has built a company that successfully operates in: aviation; oil & gas; commodities; humanitarian aid; and funding.

Fiona has been involved in a variety of businesses for many years. Her first business was in the beauty sector, operating a number of successful salons exclusively representing a number of international brands in Malta. A training school soon followed with a lot of international travel in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, where she taught and trained students. As the school expanded, Fiona was recognised as the expert in her field, mentoring, encouraging and advising the students on how to start their own successful businesses.

Compounding on this success, Fiona had a stint on Maltese television for a number of years, talking to the nation on beauty, including product assessments, client advice and communicating on beauty business issues. As fashion was always close to her heart, and as an avid follower of high fashion for years, her savvy business sense directed her in to the high-end clothes business, travelling to all the major design houses in Paris and Milan to buy fashion for the network of exclusive clients who appreciated her taste in fashion. As business developed, and after a personal development opportunity presented itself, Fiona moved her astute acumen in to property, which has been her focus for the past few years. As an add-on, funding and funding partners contribute to Fiona’s considerable business network, and as a consequence, this has brought new and even more diverse opportunities to MSSEMEA and its partners.
