Paul first started working with the business in 2014/2015, in fact the business was a client of Paul’s for just over 12 months. As the business relationship continued to grow, Pauls, James and Shaun’s shared goals and values for our clients continued to attract and retain new clients and outstanding talent to the business. It quickly became clear the next step was for Paul to become a full partner and Director in the business, CHG was born.
