StopGap Consultant

Paulo Pessoa

Head of Systems and Operations

The Serious Bit

Paulo is our Head of Systems and Operations, where he develops Stopgap’s technology to match the ever-changing needs of our business, as well as project managing new business initiatives. 

Paulo has been at Stopgap since 1998, when he joined the Finance department as a Credit Controller. Over the next 8 years, he worked his way up to Finance Manager before deciding to take a slight career change and becoming Stopgap’s Business Intelligence Manager, allowing him to play a fundamental role in strategic planning as well as managing and developing Stopgap’s unique bespoke recruitment database system.

The Fun Bit

When I was little I wanted to be...

...a pilot, as I was absolutely fascinated by planes, however that all changed when I found out my vision wasn’t 20/20.

The most daring thing I've ever done is...

...my 5-month sabbatical, which involved working for an animal sanctuary in the middle of the jungle in Thailand, followed by qualifying as a pro diver in Australia’s Gold Coast and swimming with sharks!

In my spare time you can find me...

…spending as much time as possible with my son Sebastian, and trying to keep fit by playing various sports, which include football, tennis and cricket.

The brand I am most passionate about is...

...Greenpeace, as they are truly trying to make a difference in our ever-changing world, which will hopefully mean generations to come will be able to enjoy our beautiful planet the way it should be! 

Every company could do with a Paulo - he is highly capable, being able to start with insights from high-level process analysis and then taking this through to the delivery of on the ground business process optimisation. He is always a pleasure to work with and I only wish I had someone of his calibre driving all of my projects.
