As a highly personable leader and family man, Paul continues to make a trusted contribution to the housing and leisure industries. Having joined the family business ‘Omar’ in 1977 a business established by his father in the 1960’s, Paul ultimately became Chairman in 1988 after acquiring the controlling shares of the business. Paul remained as Chairman until April 2017.
Omar’s strength came from a combination of organic growth and acquisition. As a keen champion of innovation, Paul pioneered modular manufacturing where Omar manufactured over 200 homes successfully completing developments in the Sheffield and Norfolk regions.
Under Paul’s leadership in the late 90’s turnover reached £50m with over 700 people over 5 manufacturing sites. Paul successfully navigated Omar through several turbulent economic times and sold his shares in April 2017. His subsequent investment in Lesko Modular Group creates a legacy which will continue to benefit from Paul’s undoubted industry credentials.
