Paul is Catalyst’s Chief Operating Officer. He has over 20 years of relevant experience gained in professional practice and industry.

After qualifying as a Chartered Accountant with Price Waterhouse in Nottingham, Paul spent a number of years working at premium automotive franchises. 

He was the Finance Director for the BMW franchisee, Bedfordia Automotive, where he helped to grow the business over a ten year period before working with the owners on their exit.




Being involved with the advisors during that sale process rekindled Paul's appetite for working in a professional services environment and he joined Catalyst in 2015.

Away from work, Paul is kept busy by his five children. He is a keen cyclist, enjoys a round of golf to celebrate a visit by Halley's Comet and watches Arsenal on Match of the Day, who have him thinking it might just be their year, until it all goes wrong…again.
