It was a pleasure to work with Paul for many years. Paul is a very focused, target driven person, who developed a strong team culture, whilst maintaining a very personable and approachable manner. His ability to integrate with and influence other functions within the business was also a strength.
Bringing Paul into our business was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Paul’s experience and approach has been invaluable through our steady and considerable growth over the past 5 years. He kept us on track so that we not only reached, but exceeded our goals. I can also say that his unwavering support commercially and personally through the minefields of 2020, were quite frankly lifesaving. This man is a very special individual. I respect his drive and desires to improve and develop himself as well as all those around him that are willing to take leaps of faith.
In the eleven years that Paul Toby worked as Group Commercial Director and European Commercial Director as one of our key suppliers he displayed and proved a number of combined rare personal qualities. His commercial expertise and transferable skills made him a standout and best in class talent.
During my working association with Paul he always acted in a very professional manner and was a credit to his company. His depth of understanding was considerable as was his integrity. I believe these attributes together with his general business knowledge make him an ideal non-executive director
