Back to all news

Name: Paul Jacob
Job Title: Finance Manager 
Location: Ireland

What is your role going to be at Artesyn and what will you be focusing on in the near term?

Finance Manager for the Waterford Site. My main focus in the short term will be getting a handle on costs and setting up a reporting structure to support the Management Team.

How did you get here? (Educations, work history, challenges, stories, changes, successes)

My background is in Finance having studied Accounting and Business Studies in Waterford Institute of Technology. After spending 2 years in retail, 15 years in manufacturing, 8 years in telecoms and 2 years in the public sector I am looking forward to getting back into a manufacturing environment and the challenges that it brings. Whilst the Biotech industry is new to me I have always believed you are never too old to learn something new.

What makes you you? (Hobbies, joys, dreams, values, characteristics, quirks) 

Family, football and travel. In my spare time, I coach a local schoolboys football team, enjoy swimming and the occasional game of tennis.

Name a FUN FACT about you

In my last 2 jobs, I ran the Fantasy Football League. Happy to do so again if anyone is interested in some friendly rivalry.
