“In over 20 years of working in the Hospitality Industry, I have never met anyone with Paul's unique combination of Drive, Vision, Creativity and Compassion. I worked on a major hotel renovation with Paul in 1998-1999. Rather than simply accept the design elements that were drawn up from the corporate team and work to bring about their completion, Paul consistently came up with wonderful ideas that thoroughly enhanced the overall finished product. Paul always had a new thought, a new way of looking at an old problem, or a completely radical vision that would eventually become the signature "look" of the property... His zeal to create something special is tireless! This exceptional desire to create is not limited to the physical surroundings, either... In all things, from menu's to uniforms to the dozen's of "signature touches" he employed, Paul challenges the members of the team to not only execute good products and services, but to create memorable ones. Additionally, Paul managed to steer our property toward its best financial year (in profitability) on record. In fact, we led the Omni chain in Room's profitability under Paul's direction. To do so during a normal year is notable, to do it while undergoing a renovation is unheard of. Most important of all, Paul is a man to be admired for his bearing, his strong moral compass, and his congenial (yet always professional) demeanor. Paul manages the enviable ability to be both a taskmaster and a cheerleader with incredible grace. He is not only the finest manager I have ever worked with, he is one of the finest men I have ever known.”
- Bob Barry, Director of Rooms, Omni Hotels and Resorts

As a visionary, Paul's aptitude for working through challenges and creating positive solutions is uniquely remarkable. Most importantly, he is one of the nicest guys around.”
