About me

Paul is Managing Director of AAR and has been at the company since 1998 prior to which he spent 16 years working in advertising and media agencies (DDB, Horner Collis & Kirvan, WM Media, Mediaedge:cia).
Time is split between consulting on client projects thar range from international multi-agency reviews to domestic business building between clients and their agencies.

"The best job in the world? Quite possibly!
18 years as a consultant working with brand owners that take our counsel and support in striving to get the best from their agency partners.
Seeing the very best that agencies have to offer led and staffed by super-intelligent, creative, articulate and entertaining people both at home and on the international stage.
Coming into work looking forward to what might happen almost every working day.
Not bad really when you take a moment to think about it.
The best aspect of the job is the variety and being lucky enough to work with the highest calibre talent our business has to offer.
The worst is that I'm playing less and less golf. This will have to change!  "
