At the end of 2013, Paul left Unitec and established All Green Lights Limited to support businesses and the Not-for-profit social services sector to achieve improved results.
Paul has 25 years senior financial (CFO) business experience in the electricity, health and, most recently, education sectors. Since leaving KPMG in 1991, Paul has been the Chief Financial Officer of Unitec Institute of Technology, Bay of Plenty District Health Board and Taupo Electricity Group.
Paul also brings more than 30 years governance experience to our clients (both profit generating and Not-for-Profit), earned across a wide range of organisations.
Paul’s most recent major project has been the establishment of the Ako Hiko Education Trust, working closely with the existing Manaiakalani Education Trust, to provide education tools and resources to students at low decile schools in the Mt Roskill to Mt Albert area. This will enable students to achieve education outcomes equivalent to those of higher decile schools. Education outcomes at these early stages are a strong indicator for students remaining positively engaged with society throughout their lives.
