In our series of ‘meet the team’ interviews, we chat with Arthur Gasparini, Alliants Consulting Manager.
Tell us a little about yourself
I have been working in the Marketing and eCommerce sector for close to 10 years now. I worked in Brazil for half of that time and decided to move to London in 2017 with my lovely wife, a checked-in bag, and two carry-ons. Three weeks later I met Tris and Nick and the rest is history!
What attracted you to join Alliants?
The idea of helping multiple businesses achieve their desired goals and objectives caught my attention - working with marketing, revenue management, operations, and data analysis does keep the work scope very fresh! Being able to support different teams go from point A to point B feels amazing and after delivering something, to look back and see where you started is always a great feeling.
Also meeting a bunch of amazing people from all over the world is something that I appreciate a lot. I love my team, I love my clients and projects and I could have never imagined how much I would appreciate that when I first joined.
What are some of your passions?
I like to help people, at any level, with any problem and whatever requirement. To be able to boost someone's happiness and success either by making them laugh with a joke or accomplished by achieving their goals, it's a priceless feeling. Outside of work, I like to play football (to make my ancestors proud) and I enjoy travelling, if I can spend time with family and friends while doing that, even better!
Who has been the biggest influence in your career?
I am influenced by our amazing team and leadership. I value commitment and determination a lot and I see that everyday in each big or small task we take. During my life, my father and grandfathers have been a major influence in my career. I come from a family of politicians, and the life of a politician is sometimes filled with huge overwhelming accomplishments or unappreciative frustration and injustice - seeing them endure success and failure with a head held high and a smile on their faces, it’s something I will always carry with me.
What is a great day off for you?
Give me a nice blue sky, a body of water, warm sunshine, a grill, drinks, and good company and I’ll make sure that’s a great day off!
What’s been your best travel experience?
Growing up in Brazil I remember travelling by car with my family to our country house in the middle of the Atlantic Forest (South East coast). The memories of meeting my cousins, uncles, and grandparents at that rustic country house are recorded in my heart as some of the best travel moments I ever had. I am very grateful to my family for creating those amazing childhood memories.
Your best travel tip?
Don’t underestimate the power of a short city break trip. 2-3-4 day escapes can be as amazing as spending a long week somewhere - as long as you are ready and prepared to enjoy every single moment you have.
