Press Releases - Appointment of Richard Buttigieg as Chairman

Appointment of Richard Buttigieg as Chairman

As recently mentioned at the National Day rally, Denis Matthews has stood down as the Chairman of the SDGG after a long tenure which has seen him present [12] National Days to the people of Gibraltar. Denis will nevertheless remain as Vice-Chairman so the Group will continue to avail itself of his experience.

At the AGM  meeting of the 23rd September it was agreed that Mr.  Richard Buttigieg will be taking over as Chairman, having spent two years on the committee and the last nine months as Vice-Chairman.

Richard, a lawyer with extensive experience practising locally and internationally, has been actively involved in SDGG activities for many years. He has worked closely with Denis on a varied list of issues that the SDGG has pursued in its main objective of decolonisation and delisting at the United Nations.

In relinquishing the Chair, Mr Matthews commented as follows:

“I wish to first and foremost thank the many SDGG supporters who have over many years demonstrated their loyalty and commitment to the Group and helped with all its activities. In particular, I wish to thank the people of Gibraltar who, from the very beginning, overwhelmingly supported the National Day rally.”

Whilst, Richard Buttigieg had the following to say:

“Denis’ shoes are very big shoes to fill and I am therefore under no illusion as to the magnitude of my task. I am nevertheless confident that with his help and that of the SDGG supporters, I shall be able to progress our objectives. Gibraltar is indebted to Denis for all that he has done over two decades (often without recognition). I am grateful for all that he has taught me. If I achieve only a fraction of what he has, I shall consider I have made a positive contribution.”
