He has been recognised as a Fellow of Information Privacy (FIP) by the International Association of Privacy Professionals.

Gaspar has been a visiting lecturer at symposiums and universities – notably, ISDE and IE Business School – and author of several articles in privacy & data protection and intellectual property topics, having recently collaborated with the IAPP in the creation of new content for the CIPP/E certification.

Gaspar joins Salesforce as a member of the EMEA Commercial Legal team with a focus on Spain and Portugal.

In a statement on LinkedIn, Gaspar said: “I’m really excited to be joining the Commercial Legal team of Salesforce in Madrid. I am looking forward to all the challenges ahead and committed to help this amazing company grow (even further) in Spain and Portugal! I would also like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Accor and, most notably, to Mariana and to all the other colleagues that I had the chance to work with and for helping me grow over the last two years in such a great company.”

Gaspar was recently featured as Iberian Lawyer’s “Young & Unstoppable” in the February edition of the magazine.
