I’ll always have fond memories of Paul and the funny stories he shared. I had the privilege to work for him for many years and he will always be a character I’ll never forget. The trip around London in his convertible Bentley when the tubes were on strike that took four hours! To the …

Paul’s interest in his community was exemplary – I worked with him on his support for Christ Church (as a Churchwarden) and his advice, guidance and generosity were invaluable.  Practical, humorous, forgiving of honest errors, and wanting to see results. A good man, well remembered and I am sorry to hear of his death. …

I first met Paul over a beer one Sunday lunchtime with Mike Bentley at a squash club in north London in 1978  (Paul wasn’t playing, but I had been). At that time we were competitors, but both our businesses were very small then. We maintained a friendly competition, as well as inter-company darts challenges …

What can one say about Paul that has not already been said? It is never easy to summarise the life and achievements of any individual in a few words, yet alone those of someone who has contributed and attained so much as has Paul. He always offered his all (and more) in everything which …

Very sad to hear of Paul’s death. So many memories of our years as South Hampstead parents, in Hampstead and in Whitstable – Paul was a wonderfully warm, generous and entertaining host, so devoted to family and such a wonderful raconteur. Securing a table at The Sportsman was a magical feat – the boys …

Paul, you were an inspiration to me, and I suspect to everyone who got to know you.   Every adversity was faced with humour and determination and more often than not turned into a triumph. You were a true gentleman, and your quick wit and self depracting humour enlivened every meeting I was fortunate enough …

I met Paul when we were both bidding for the same property in Hampstead. I believe this was the only deal he lost out on and, thankfully, I am still living at this fabulous home! He subsequently bought Heathside instead and our friendship blossomed as we share a love of vintage properties and Ferraris. …

I first met Paul when he introduced himself to the management team of Deltic after buying the business from the administrators in 2011.  He gave a small speech on stage and came across so genuine- it won’t last we all thought !  How wrong we were. What an inspiration.  Always had a supportive word …

Paul was an impressive man. He was fun, quick, intelligent and a very talented business man. Our friendship began at the FIDI conference in Berlin, when he proposed me as a member to the Mongoose Club. 2014 I left the moving industry but stayed in touch with Paul privately by phone and email. He …

Jan and Barrie Thornton

We met Paul in the early 70’s when he was young and poor, incredibly ambitious with a diabolical sense of humour. No longer young and poor he kept his diabolical sense of humour and remained incredibly ambitious. Despite his many health problems his energy levels never waned. He was a one off, the most …
