When I started working for Sennheiser UK in 1992, Paul was head of sales but shortly to take over running the UK office. I must admit, for a young 20 year old, I was just a little bit frightened of Paul – I think it was that beard 😊 However, I very quickly found that he was a great boss and very encouraging. Everyone who knew Paul would agree that his drive and enthusiasm at work was unmatched but on the flip side, he loved to have a good time and socialise. I have fond memories of nights out after Eurovision, training courses in Berlin and the Sennheiser 50th Birthday bash where Pauls rendition of the House of the Rising Sun left the audience shouting for more (or maybe stop, I’m not sure) and we couldn’t even blame the microphones.
I’m no longer at Sennheiser but keep in touch with a few ex colleagues and like everyone, have been shocked and saddened to hear of Pauls passing. I send my best wishes to Pauls family and hope they can find comfort in knowing Paul really made an impact with everyone he met and will be missed by all who knew him.
