Paul heads up the Heyford Park delivery team and our bespoke housebuilder business, Dorchester Living. He has been instrumental in shaping the group’s approach to community led regeneration through its Heyford Park project.

Paul has built strong relationships with the local authorities, local councillors and other key stakeholders involved in Heyford Park and was instrumental in founding of Heyford Park Free School, where he holds the roles of Chairman of the Trust and the Board of Governors. As well as playing an active role in education on the project, Paul was also a major advocate in the need for Dorchester Group to establish itself as a Registered Social Landlord and set up a business specifically to manage the social and affordable housing on site.

A Chartered Accountant by trade, Paul joined Dorchester Group as an equity partner in 2003, having previously worked as a Mergers and Acquisitions advisor to the Housebuilding sector at Deutsche Bank and Citigroup. On joining Dorchester Group he helped refocus the business into the new build arena, establishing its project finance arm which acted as a joint venture partner to many of the UK largest housebuilders.
