Paul is a highly respected director and corporate advisor, and a sought-after mentor for business owners in Australia. His executive career extends over 25 years, having occupied multiple CEO and/or CFO roles, including Aussie successes Catch Group and 2XU, and executive roles in high profile listed organisations JB Hi-Fi Limited (ASX) and Kraft Heinz Company (NASDAQ). His specialty, as both a leader of businesses and those that he works closely with today, is building high performance teams to achieve high performance results. Paul commenced his professional career at Big 4 advisory firm PricewaterhouseCoopers within their Entrepreneurial & Business Services team, and in recent years returned to his consulting roots as the founding CEO of Accension, a group of experts committed to unlocking the full potential of emerging and high growth businesses. Paul discovered badminton at the age of 13 and in his junior years was a Pennant player at Mountain Districts Badminton Association. These days Paul has rediscovered his love for playing the sport and enjoys a hit down at the Ocean Grove Badminton Club. He is excited to “give back” to a sport that has provided him so much enjoyment over the years.
Paul says, “I’m passionate about promoting the growth, success, and popularity of Badminton in Australia where there is such a culture and love of sport in general, and therefore so many competing choices at the grass roots. I’m committed to supporting Badminton Australia’s members, players and officials as well as providing leadership, governance, mentoring and support to all participants and administrators of the sport.”
