Paul was born into a family where hockey could have been considered a religion, but his snow addiction soon found a way to the surface. One class trip at the age of 13 and he was hooked on skiing and snowboarding for life.
Although only a recent arrival to the Canadian Ski Council in the role of President and CEO, Paul has spent a career dedicated to snowsports and sees the industry through a lens that includes retail, manufacturer and resort based experience. A keen advocate for customer centric strategies, Paul comes to the CSC after a 14 year engagement with Blue Mountain Resort, ultimately serving as VP, Marketing as the resort grew into a four season destination.
A family man, Paul loves to be outdoors and on the water with his wife Lynn, daughter Hayley, and his chocolate lab Rallye. Camping, hiking, and boating occupy a significant part of their non-winter lives. Although, Paul enjoys a bit of racing with the boys and road cycling when time allows.
