Paul does not sell himself well on paper. In person heâ€™s been told heâ€™s charming, enthusiastic and at times brilliant â€“ however heâ€™s far to modest to ever allow someone to write this.
Paulâ€™s early career achievements saw him promoted to be the UK MD of IMP - a $500mil business publishing collectible series through direct marketing channels across 20 countries - at the age of 26. In this position Paul was responsible for the development & implementation of a turnaround strategy which resulted in double digit increases in revenue & net profits, the implementation of improved management discipline, and the businesses initial diversifications into new online ventures.
More recently Paul has taken an active angel investor role in a range of start-up and early stage companies, whilst continuing to be an active senior level advisor to a range of companies including LexisNexis.
Having recently founded Zookel, Paul is continuing to drive the young company forward by taking on the mantle of CEO. Paul is originally from Australia, but has lived and worked in Sweden, France, Germany, Australia, the US and the UK.
