Paul doesn’t take “no” at face value. He questions and pushes teams and individuals to be better. He asks the right questions. He brings to light new insights. Most importantly, he uncovers value-creating opportunities.
His work in building Envi, a carbon neutral brand for Australian Paper in the ultimate commodity category, was disruptive and ahead of its time.
At Australian Paper, Paul and his team challenged the status quo by successfully engaging with end users in the corporate sector that were hungry for education and advice on how to adapt their purchasing in order to become more sustainable.
He ‘jumped the supply chain’ of printers and stationers and was able to command market share leadership at a premium price.”
