Paul

Non-Exec Director

Paul

Non-Exec Director

Dr Paul Kearney is a Non-Executive Director for Push who specializes in supporting teams through complex transitions. A former Royal Marines officer who commanded Special Operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan he is used to working on a ‘frontier.’ Nowadays the frontiers are more metaphorical than physical but the challenges remain the same, when you are doing something new you have to be comfortable dealing with uncertainty whilst maintaining a clear focus on the objective at hand. At Push the objective is helping the team to build on their unique strengths that will naturally differentiate Push from the online advertising agency ‘pack’.

Paul recently comes from the international Marketing Operations group ITG, where he helped build the group from a startup to a $300m+ turnover with clients including M&S, Boots and Audi.
