Paul started his career with 10 years in the pharmaceutical industry, initially working as a medical representative in London. He then progressed through more senior roles, culminating as a Global Brand Manager, based in Switzerland. Paul moved to the service side of the business and was a board member for one of the world’s largest medical communications companies. During that time, he had responsibility for about 120 staff – medical writers, and associated roles. He’s lived and worked in Worthing since 1991, except for five years spent running a satellite office in the United States.
