During a 20 year career in the finance sector, Paul spent the first ten years working for national accountancy firms including 7 years at a 'Big 4' firm in Bristol and Exeter. During this time he advised on both 'buy side' transactions including MBO's and acquisitions, together with 'sell side' mandates in a range of sectors.

He has spent the last ten years in the banking industry with HSBC undertaking leadership roles in both corporate banking and leverage and acquisition finance.

In joining Francis Clark and returning to the accountancy profession, Paul is seeking to utilize his combined corporate finance and banking experience to provide advice to business owners and management teams in gaining the necessary funding to achieve their business goals.
