General Manager

With 20 years experience as a synthetic organic chemist, Paul brings a wealth of scientific knowledge to GlycoSyn. 

He joined the company in 2005 as Process Development Manager, becoming Operations Manager a year later, with responsibility for both chemistry development and GMP manufacturing. In 2008, Paul was made General Manager, combining his managerial and scientific skill sets into a leadership role guiding the overall operation of GlycoSyn, its strategic direction, productivity and profitability.

Paul holds a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Otago and carried out post-doctoral research at the University of Bristol in England. Before joining GlycoSyn, Paul was a research scientist in the internationally recognised Carbohydrate Chemistry Team at Industrial Research Limited (IRL), helping with contract synthesis and process development for a wide variety of potential drug substances.

The GlycoSyn business itself is one of Paul’s passions and nothing gives him greater satisfaction than positive feedback after GlycoSyn has delivered on time, in specification and on budget. After hours he can be found on the golf course, running or studying the wonders of the night sky.
