We’re pleased to announce that Paul Hastings has been promoted to Divisional Director of TÜV SÜD Real Estate in the UK.
Paul joined TÜV SÜD Dunbar Boardman in 2011 as a Lift Consultant bringing with him over 12 years’ experience as a Lift Services Manager for Sheffield City Council and then the Kier Group. In 2015 he became a Regional Director at TÜV SÜD Dunbar Boardman and then four years later he progressed to Managing Director.
Paul is looking forward to this new chapter and believes that there are great opportunities within the market. He said: 'I have a fantastic team around me and our business is going from strength to strength with record order intakes in 2022. I always try to bring a growth mindset to work to help find solutions to the challenges that our customers have, to add tangible value to the solutions that we provide. Winston Churchill famously said, “The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist see opportunity in every difficulty.” I’m also grateful for the opportunities that the TÜV SÜD organisation has provided as well as the great leadership, mentoring and trust from TÜV SÜD’s UK CEO, Chris Guy.'
TÜV SÜD Dunbar Boardman provides a complete range of lift, escalator and façade access services and is experiencing a period of growth with several new contracts meaning that the team now support over 18,000 lift units across Europe.
Chris Guy commented:
‘Paul’s experience and management approach has allowed the business to grow and improve its effectiveness, all whilst maintaining the focus on safety quality and customer service. The new role will widen Paul’s area of interest as we seek to support customers further with their Building Safety, Lifecycle and Sustainability needs. I wish him every success in his new position.’
