Paula Gaia joins Polar Insight Portugal as Head of Special Projects

We are pleased to announce that Paula Gaia has joined the team in Lisbon to head up a new Special Projects division at Polar Insight Portugal that will explore issues of relevance for the company, our clients and our network of researchers and creative partners.

Informing Polar Insight’s strategy and internal working practices, the new division will conduct regional research with workers, policy makers and business leaders, regularly bringing these audiences together to discuss the topics and phenomena defining the future of work in Portugal and around the world.

The expectations of our partners, clients and the public, and the complex environments within which they operate, are changing. I am looking forward to working with Paula and her team to understand the opportunities and risks these changes present so we can navigate through them with confidence.
James Tattersfield, Managing Director

Previously, Paula headed up an insights and innovation department in Rio de Janeiro (clients incl. Postos Petrobas and Oi) for one of Brazil’s most successful advertising agencies, NBS. Before this, she helped global brands such as Coca-Cola and L’ Oreal use marketing intelligence to understand and connect more closely with their audiences across Latin America.

“It is really inspiring to investigate new ways of working and meet the people who are leading the change. And I love that I can be a part of this change with Polar Insight.” Paula Gaia, Head of Special Projects
