The following testimonials relate to our Principle Consultant, Paulo Larkman


I have worked with Paulo over the last 12 months and have enjoyed the experience.  Paulo is clearly very knowledgeable on fleet issues and current tax issues in this arena.  He is also very commercially aware. I have found Paulo to be a good project manager with understanding of what was his internal business at Lombard. Paulo is also always looking at other opportunities to develop services. Paulo is a good person to have on board.

I wanted to recommend Paulo for some time. I have worked on many projects and change initiatives over the years and what is surprising about Paulo is the breadth of knowledge he has in multiple disciplines. Working on the Sales Board, he was able to engage with stakeholders across the business and challenge areas such as finance, strategy, portfolio management and product development in ensuring we are always working for the customer. Strong leadership and being multi-disciplined means that he gets the job done.

I have been operating an on-line retail business from the UAE for some time and find that having the resource in Perran Maven in the UK is invaluable. Paulo and his team are so well connected, whether I need assistance on import duty or online marketing, they are always there to assist, often when time-scales are against them. Recommend.

I have worked for Paulo for seven years and we have experienced many business changes together. What sets Paulo apart is that rather than reflecting on the change and being swept along by others, he can see what the end game looks like and get going towards the plan. This makes for a refreshing and exciting environment to work in. In addition, Paulo is one of the very few people who can innovate in a highly regulated environment. With all of the compliance and controls that we are subject to, he still manages to find appropriate solutions for customers without incurring any risk for the business.

I have known Paulo for 10 years and in this time I have always found him to be professional. Always a pleasure to work with, his knowledge of the fleet industry is vast, this mixed with his business and financial acumen and ability to return with viable fleet, policy, and contractual solutions makes him a valuable member of the team. When Paulo is on your project team, you know that you can trust him to deliver, and back it up with sound reasoning.

Paulo, quite simply, is the first person you involve in a deal and he's the last person to walk away from it. He always brings another view to the table, covers off an angle you've not thought of and his immense financial and technical knowledge and awareness make him a hugely valuable asset to anyone. He's an absolute pleasure to work with and he is the one person you want and need on your team because he makes a difference every single day.

I have worked with Paulo for many years and always find it a pleasure. Paulo's knowledge of all aspects that come together within the fleet proposition is vast. He has supported in many areas including financial modelling, legal structure and pricing of deals as well as providing an excellent service through his team in finding solutions for customers. His team are highly motivated and are a "go-to" when something innovative is required. I highly recommend his work.
