Paul founded Stenham Property Limited, a property fund management business, for the Stenham Group in 1995. As managing director he was responsible for driving the development of the business and, by the time that the Stenham Group was sold to Peregrine Holdings Limited (a financial services business listed on the JSE) in 2007, Stenham Property had in excess of £2 billion of assets under management.
In 2014 Paul, together with CFO Patsy Watson, orchestrated the sale of Stenham Property and a substantial part of the assets under management, by way of a share deal to a JSE and BSX listed entity, now known as Stenprop. Paul was appointed as the CEO of Stenprop and continues in that position.
Paul graduated as a lawyer at Edward Nathan & Friedland Inc in South Africa. In 1990 he moved from South Africa to London where he joined Titmuss Sainer Dechert (now called Dechert) in their corporate department. He subsequently became a partner at the London office of Sonnenberg Hoffman & Galombik in 1994, prior to joining the Stenham Group in 1995.
