Professor

 
Paul is a full-time professor of Strategic Management at Fundação Dom Cabral. He holds a Ph.D. (2016) from the University of Geneva, which focused on examining CEO and Top Management Team changes’ nature, causes, and effects on firm innovation and firm performance. His thesis was nominated for the prestigious Best Conference Paper Award by Strategic Management Society (2012). In 2015 with a fellowship of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), he spent eighteen months as visiting Ph.D. at the Insper Institute, Brazil. He also holds a MBA and a master degree in business administration. Paul is a permanent visiting researcher at University of St. Gallen, and a guest researcher at the Insper Institute where as an academic advisor he participated in the design and launch of the Center for Leadership and Innovation. His research explores the nexus of firms’ resources, corporate governance, and organizational adaptation, thereby examining how adaptable governance structures can support the dynamic orchestration of resources and create value. He typically relies on theoretical constructs such as organizational learning, strategic leadership, CEO and Top Management characteristics, career and firm trajectories, and organizational paradoxes (exploration and exploitation; stability and change). His work was published in outlets such as Harvard Business Review Brazil and Germany. Prior to academia, Paul also accumulated several industry experiences as CEO and Founder in startups, Senior Manager in investment banking and strategic management consulting, as well as a solid international working profile.
