“When I first met Paul I was needing to go through a refinancing and he helped to steer us through that minefield. You really need a solid understanding of finance, as well as the dairy industry, in order to have the best outcome.
Paul’s understanding of the mechanisms of money, as well as his broad-spread knowledge of the industry and how things work in dairy, meant he was able to provide us with the expertise we needed. You can’t expect someone to know everything about the industry, but anything that Paul didn’t know about he would ask intelligent questions, with a genuine interest. So he always makes sure he’s in a position of knowledge.
We’re under enough pressure, being an asset rich and cash poor enterprise, so to have someone like Paul in your team is a benefit.
I really appreciate Paul’s honesty too. If something isn’t able to be done, he’ll tell me, but also offer other suggestions for solutions. He’s never going to lead you up the garden path – but if he can’t do it, no one can!
Since starting to work with Paul I have been happily recommending him to others, who also speak as highly of him.”
