Having served in the British Army’s Airborne forces in multiple theatres, including Afghanistan, the Balkans and Northern Ireland, Paul left military service to embark upon a career in the security industry. He carried out a number of high-profile roles acting as Close Protection for Diplomats, Middle Eastern government officials, and private High Net Worth Individuals.

In order to address this disparity of standards he decided to create Horizon Security Solutions in 2012, initially focussed upon training the next generation of security professionals, though subsequently expanding to cover a wide range of security and logistic services.
His priority is now ensuring that all areas of Horizon’s broad portfolio meet a consistently high standard, providing both value and quality to all clients. Consequently, Horizon has achieved multiple accreditations and awards in the industry.
