Since Paulino joined Alexander Forbes, he spent some time to familiarise himself with the areas of responsibility of the position of a Managing Director. He also took time to understand the whole business of the group. This entailed reading a lot of documents and attending several meetings which he says was an exciting journey.

Paulino says that throughout his long career, he has worked smartly and eventually managed to accomplish many of his goals and successes which have contributed to the growth of his professional career. Just like many other career experts and professionals, Paulino also encountered many challenges which helped him to strengthen his character.

He says some of the short-term goals of the company are to maintain and grow the assets under management, attract more institutional investments, staff development and prepare succession, increase internal and external stakeholders’ relationships, increase shareholder value, as well as improve effectiveness and efficiency.

“Throughout my career, I have been proud of being a team player, jointly achieving organisational goals and objectives being in the business and sporting fields,” he says.

Paulino’s daily busy workload and schedule also includes watching news on television, reading newspapers, and perusing company documents to prepare for upcoming meetings. He also keeps fit by going to the gym or jogging, and when time permits, he plays a round of golf. Paulino also dedicates time to family.

Paulino’s formal education began at Döbra Roman Catholic School from January 1975 until November 1979. He obtained a National Senior Certificate with Matriculation Exemption in English, Afrikaans, German, Mathematics, Physical Science and Geography.

Post matriculating, he studied at the University of Zululand in South Africa from February 1980 to November 1983. Thereafter, he obtained a Bachelor of Law (B.Juris) and also an MA Degree from the University of Warwick in the UK . He also has a diploma in Management Development Programme (MDP) from the University of South Africa (UNISA) .

While working at Rossing Uranium Limited, he attended several supervisory, management, leadership and media handling training programmes.
