Learn more about Paul below:

What is your most memorable trip or vacation?
St. Croix/US Virgin Islands – fantastic getaway! My favorite adventure was when my wife and I rented four-wheeler ATVs and set out across the mountains and beaches of the island. We visited beaches where pirate ships moored centuries ago. My favorite food was the array of fresh seafood on the island. Amazing!


Do you have a charity that is near and dear to your heart? Who and why?

Oscar Mike Foundation, an apparel company that focuses on improving mobility, accessibility, mental health, and well-being of Veterans, would be my favorite. They stand for all that is true for disabled Veterans, and I’ve personally met the President and Founder, Noah Currier – it is an outstanding organization.

The best advice you’d give someone entering the workforce:
Enjoy the journey! Take your time developing your career and moving forward to the next step.

What do you love most about First Nation Group?
They’ve become a family to me over the course of the past four years! I also love and respect the dedication to Veteran philanthropy that this company exhibits daily.

What is your biggest takeaway from your time at First Nation Group?
The teamwork and support are second to none. First Nation Group changes the lives of Veterans!

What are three words you would use to describe First Nation Group?
Collaborative, supportive, and rewarding.

Paul, from all of us at First Nation Group, we thank you for all you have done. We appreciate your commitment and dedication to the business, but most importantly, to those we serve and support. You will absolutely be missed!
