Technology Architect, Digital & Technology Sainsbury's
Paul is a Technology Architect in the “Chief Technology Office” of Sainsbury’s Supermarkets. Having graduated from the University of Plymouth in the late 90’s, he moved to London before settling in Coventry to take on his first serious IT role and, like many others, the challenges of Y2K. Since then he’s worked in the Public Sector, Retail, Manufacturing & Banking (Retail and Trading), moving from Systems Support, Administration, Project Engineering and finally into Architecture & Strategy.
He has worked on projects all over the world, taking his Yorkshire sense of humour and welcoming demeanour with him. With an appetite to challenge conventional thinking and a love for technology old and new, he also recognises that all the gadgets in the world are worthless without considering the people that use them. Father of four, husband, avid gamer, music lover and guitarist; he brings passion to everything he does. As his children constantly remind him, “YOLO”.
