Paul Johnson is very much a home-grown talent.
He joined Great Annual Savings Group in its infancy, fresh from a youth career as a professional footballer with Hartlepool United. He quickly established a reputation within the business and aced all required accountancy qualifications in the space of four years to become the Group’s Management Accountant.
Several successful projects later, Paul was promoted to Head of Finance. When the former FD left GAS, he took on the mantle of the business’ most senior finance professional; boasting a string of incredible achievements all under the age of 30.
“I have witnessed phenomenal growth at the Group over the many years I’ve worked here and I’m looking forward to guiding the Group into an exciting new chapter.”
Paul made his professional debut for Hartlepool United against Bournemouth in the Football League. Some say Danny Ings still resides in his pocket to this day.
