We have appointed our first ever Business Development Director as part of our on-going strategy for growth.

Paul Moran, a chartered surveyor and the former Estates and Facilities Manager at Harper Adams University, will join us in the new role on October 1.

He will also sit on our executive board, which is responsible for the direction and development of the firm, alongside Managing Director Steven Owen, Construction Director Jamie Evans, and Commercial Director Victoria Lawson.

During his 16-year tenure at the Shropshire university, Paul helped to double the size of the campus. Prior to that he managed a significant property portfolio for a national insurance firm and also worked in private practice.

He will be responsible for enhancing our existing client support function and exploring new opportunities within a variety of sectors.

Paul said: “Having worked closely with Pave Aways on a wide range of projects, I know it is a dynamic and forward thinking business that prides itself on delivering construction excellence.

“With ambitious plans for growth and a determination to provide an exemplary standard of service across all areas of the business, it’s an exciting new role and I look forward to being part of the team that will drive Pave Aways on to further success.”

Our Managing Director Steven Owen added that he was very pleased to have secured someone of Paul’s calibre as our first Business Development Director.

“This is a landmark in our development. Paul’s 30 years experience in the construction industry, coupled with a comprehensive network of contacts, will be a huge asset to us.

“As we grow, we are determined not to compromise on the service and support we offer our clients. One of the main aspects of Paul’s role will be to review and develop our strategy in this area as well as laying the foundations for the stable growth of Pave Aways.”

Paul is a member of the Shropshire Constructing Excellence network, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Association of Project Managers. He holds an MBA in construction and real estate and a postgraduate diploma in project management.
