Paul lives in the Northwest of England, happily married with 3 grown up sons and 1 grandson. He was educated at Kings Grammar School Macclesfield, and on leaving school served a 4 year apprenticeship and qualified in mechanical engineering.
Paul left engineering to work in the family haulage business, and worked in haulage for 23 years, the last 11 years running his own business with several employees. He sold the business in 2004 to work for RTMS, managing the re-usable core operations in Haydock for 3 years, then to Dundee for 6 months, when the core operation moved there.
Most of his time is now spent working at customer sites, installing monitoring equipment and RFID systems. Paul acknowledges he is far happier when getting his hands dirty.
Outside of work, his time is spent rebuilding and restoring motorcycles, riding in classic trials, enduro events and clay pigeon shooting.
