Paul’s our founder and Managing Director. After spending 10 years working in digital marketing and consultancy around the UK, he decided to take a jump out of the big corporate safety bubble and start his own business back in December 2017.
”I felt like I could open an agency with a fresh perspective. Taking on board everything I had learned dealing with large corporates and applying the tech and know-how to SME’s. Since opening Blaze, I have further respect for the small business owner/director as I have now been through the same trials and tribulations that they have! Owning a business of any size is hard and I know that we try to make our clients lives easier by taking the marketing head-ache away so they can concentrate on growing their business”
Outside of growing the agency, Paul loves riding his motorbike, spending time with his kids and dog (Lola) as well as running and cycling to stay young and fit!
