During his last twelve years as a banker, Paul closed over 35 transactions across multiple geographies and sub-sectors within A&D. Paul is recognised as one of Europe’s leading A&D investment banking advisors.

During his time within the A&D industry, Paul was a senior executive at BAE Systems and also at Smiths Aerospace.
