Paul has spent the lion’s share of his career at Target. He cofounded the company in 1998, developing it from a fledgling distributor of core components, to the £27m business it is today. He graduated with a degree in Economics from the University of Leeds, then qualified as a Chartered Accountant with Ernst & Young. Paul’s passion for independent business led him to directly focus on the indie reseller market, with particular emphasis on providing resellers with the tools they need to develop their own businesses. As a well-respected channel figure, Paul also launched ShopTalk, Target’s free business advisory service for resellers. He has contributed to various channel publications and has also appeared on TV  championing independent business and its value to the UK economy.
