A Chartered Accountant, he earned a BCom in Economics and Commerce from the University of Melbourne and a graduate Diploma in Applied Finance from the Securities Institute of Australia.
How Paul is building a better working world
“Challenge, change and innovation gets me out of bed every day. Whether it is business, sports or location, I thrive on the new, the different, the competition and the challenge. This urge in me, I believe, helps contribute to building a better working world for the future and keeps things interesting and dynamic.”
