About Paul

Specialist in Business Development, Sales, Management and Recruitment

Having built and established a specialist perm recruitment company from just two staff to 90, with an annual turnover in excess of £4 million I exited in 2009. In total I have over 20 years experience in developing recruitment businesses.

I have relationships with law firms, ABS's, specialist property businesses, finance and private equity houses and have either recruited or worked with leading C-Suite (CEO, CIO, CFO, COO), Legal Directors and or Partners of regional, national and international businesses.

With a professional sports background I also have an extensive contact list within the sporting world and count many Directors of Sport and Chief Execs as personal friends as well as business contacts.

Happy to network and speak with anybody looking to grow a business, exit, manage and or develop sales teams.
