Paul started his career working with Short Bros in Belfast as a Missile Systems Engineer where he worked on the ‘Starstreak’ project with responsibility for the integration of the missile with the Stormer armoured vehicle. Seeking more adventure Paul joined the Royal Air Force and spent the next 18 years within a wide range of environments from routine base life to the chaos of operational frontline service.

High level jobs in a variety of Headquarters units saw him responsible for the development of strategy, delivery plans and leading change programmes.
