Founder and Managing Director
Paul has been in electronic development for the entirety of his career and even before then – building a bedrock of vital skills and knowledge from a childhood spent developing hobby electronics.
PaniK technology, Paul’s first venture set up in Bristol in 1989, acquired an enviable reputation for delivering one-stop electronic design services to inventors, emerging businesses and corporations before its sale in 2011, boasting an extensive client list including Mars Drinks and Smith and Nephew.
After seeing the Science Park’s foundations go down from his kitchen window and going for a sneaky look around, Paul decided a second venture was the way forward and so, in 2012 Cubik Innovation was established, initially as a lifestyle business! Three years on Cubik have gone from the team of one to a team of nearly twenty technical and creative team members with a stunning client list spanning Bristol’s inventors to multinational companies.
One of Paul’s biggest passions is helping to develop the talents of our younger engineers with the majority of his time in the office spent mentoring his team, helping them find better ways of making things work. To this end, Cubik have a great history of taking on interns and apprentices and cultivating a lasting partnership.
When he’s not at Cubik Towers (which doesn’t leave a huge amount of time) Paul works in sound and light engineering, working with Bristol based bands and live music venues, and is the oracle on the forgotten bands of the 80s.
