  • "As Chair of EDH I worked closely with Paul for 5 years in his role as CEO. EDH was a failing company which Paul very quickly transformed into a success story gaining the requisite star status to release over £100 m decent homes investment. Paul is a strategically minded, politically astute individual, who focuses on customer needs by involving all stakeholders to achieve solutions. He was held in high regard by employees and board members and I am confident he will be successful in this new venture."

  • "As Chair of Four Housing Group, I worked very closely with Paul during his period as Chief Executive. Much was achieved during the time that Paul led the Group. Performance in key areas was high and Paul played a very important role in the work that led to the merger with Bernicia Group. In so doing he focused strongly upon ensuring that the needs of tenants was the primary driving factor. Paul has very extensive experience of the social housing sector and has developed considerable knowledge and expertise in key areas. At Four Housing he demonstrated a strong emphasis upon operational performance but also showed clear strategic vision. He was able to develop very effective external relations with key organisations and individuals. His personal performance appraisals were all good which reflected his ability to achieve often challenging objectives."

  • "I have known Paul for many years and have always been impressed by his knowledge and commitment to housing. He was always a pleasure to work with and could be relied on for his sound judgement and approach."
