Meet Paul

Paul loves being a trusted resource for ideas. With a calm demeanor and a comfort with complexity, he works alongside executive teams to drive growth.


As a general partner at ABS Capital, Paul focuses on business and tech-enabled services out of the San Francisco office. Over the past 15 years, he’s developed an appreciation for the critical attributes that enable companies to achieve their next level of success. He shares his talent in helping companies to focus on their priorities — distilling them down to the ones that will best deliver. Never working with too many companies at one time, Paul stays focused on the details and is always happy to brainstorm, promising new strategic directions.
