'Think Big' + 'Move Fast' Squad Lead
Paul believes in the power of innovation to help people and systems thrive.
Over the last decade, Paul has run the innovation programme at FNB and experimented with new ways to work at Standard Bank, where he sponsored internal startups including SnapScan, Edge Banking and feenix.org.
Paul is serving Parliament for a second term on the National Advisory Council on Innovation (NACI) and is a slave to his family and pets.
In a cruel twist of fate, he lives in the Stellenbosch Winelands but can't speak Afrikaans or ride a mountain bike.
