Working with Paul was a pleasure. His people skills carried us through the initial scepticism of both Group Management and employee reaction, but then motivated us all to reach for higher goals. The ongoing strategic approach to further growth, that we created together, helped us all develop our skills. The personal satisfaction from achieving profitability and securing new processes is something that I will remember always, Ken Ottley PAC Manager”
