Eleni Pappas Paulo Accounting Manager

Eleni reports to Steve Poss, Corporate Controller. Steve joined Paulo earlier this year, part of John Straetker’s Finance and Administration team. Although the corporate teams are not directly involved in our core business of thermal processing customer parts, they are a key part of our overall strategy and engaged in helping Paulo achieve our future picture. Continued reinvestment into our current facilities, and our ability to expand into the future depend on a strong Finance Team.

Steve commented, “We are very excited to welcome Eleni to our Finance Team!  Eleni brings a wide range of accounting, financial analysis and process improvement experience in both domestic and international companies.  Initially, Eleni will be focusing on improving our month-end closing and reporting processes and we are confident that she will make significant contributions towards achieving Paulo’s goals.”
