PEOPLE - profile

Paul Houghton, Head of IT Security

Starting his career as a professional photographer in London, Paul has carried his passion for photography throughout his life. It was back in the 1980's when IBM first released its home computing technologies that  Paul’s passion for gadgets and computers was ignited. From that moment onwards, Paul found his career in IT.

Paul moved to Jersey in 2008 and soon after joined the Aztec Group bringing with him over 25 years experience in IT systems and infrastructure gained across diverse UK business sectors such as manufacturing, distribution and regulatory authorities.

In addition to Paul’s dedication to driving IT infrastructure development, he reflects on the main catalyst for joining the Group “It was Aztec’s unique culture and the style of the business led by a very open management team, never afraid to try new things.”

"Paul was my first point of contact at Aztec, having interviewed me and subsequently became my boss. For me therefore he encapsulates what I understand to be Aztec culture. It’s not ritual sacrifice - but more his pragmatic approach and willingness to get things done paired with a wealth of experience and expertise that is everything Aztec." - Charles Swainston, Head of IT Applications.

Aztec’s outstanding client retention rate, in Paul’s eyes, is down to our people. “Clients see that our staff are committed and willing to go the extra mile. As we are owner managed, we are not rigid in our approach. We always strive to adapt – if clients have specific needs, we do what we can to accommodate them.”

Paul is an associate member of the Business Continuity Institute and the British Standards Institute. He is also qualified ITIL in Service Management, Lotus Notes CLP and has part completed the CISSP.
