Before Travelers, Paul steadily worked his way up the ranks of marketing via an array of different industries: power, telecoms, financial products, insurance, banking, publishing, and then insurance again.
This breadth of work, including a two year stint as a global marketing consultant, has given him a formidable set of knowledge and experience.

Paul is evangelical about the breakthroughs that good marketing can achieve. He is also a proud advocate of insurance, because it provides support when you need it most.
This website for law firms has been championed by Paul from the start. He could see the scope to provide a set of outstanding resources to help law firms grow and prosper in these difficult times. He also realised the importance of involving the best experts from the word go.
