Founder & Managing Director
Paul Quinn is Managing Director of Quinntessential Marketing. Paul has more than nineteen years experience in professional marketing – seventeen of which have been specifically within the Human Resource and recruitment sectors.
Before launching Quinntessential in January 2002, Paul worked until September 2001 as Group Marketing Manager at Candle Australia Ltd (now known as ‘Clarius’). In this role Paul worked on the Candle IT&T Recruitment, Freeman Adams, Alliance Recruitment and Candle Executive brands, and was instrumental in growing the Candle IT&T Recruitment brand to be voted Australia’s most recognised IT recruitment brand. Prior to this Paul held the position of Marketing Manager at prominent IT recruiter AmBit Technology (now known as Peoplebank).
A degree-qualified Commerce graduate with a double major in Marketing and Management, Paul is adept at new product development and project managing a wide range of marketing solutions for large ASX-listed companies through to small boutique organisations. Specifically, Paul has over 12 years experience designing and project managing staff and customer research projects of all sizes. Paul’s frustration with the high cost and inefficiencies of traditional paper-based research methodologies and his passion for anything ‘online‘ was the catalyst that led to the creation of the first version of PeoplePulse online survey tool in 2003.
