Paul is Bridget’s husband and has been involved with Travel Stop, in one capacity or another, from the very beginning. He fitted the first shelf in Elmswell in 1991 when the company was first started, completely refurbished the Claydon office when purchased in 1999 (it was originally the village post office). In 2013 he completed a transformation of the corner store to the Hadleigh branch and again in 2018 turned The Bell House Gallery in Buntingford into the latest Travel Stop office.
Trained as an electrical engineer Paul was keen to learn about computer control in the 1990’s and he now looks after all of Travel Stop’s IT requirements for the 20 staff over the four offices.
In September 2015 he became more involved in the business by taking over the accounts to enable Bridget to compete in the eleven month “Clipper Round the World Yacht Race”, until she returned to take back the reins in August 2016. He remains an integral part of the business.
In his spare time, Paul enjoys working out at the gym, going on holiday, and good Argentinian Malbec red wine! His holidays however, do seem to consist of being ‘dragged around the world’ by Bridget who seems to have an insatiable appetite for the more ‘out-of the-norm’ style of holidays and destinations very much ‘off-the-beaten-track’ – but he has kept up admirably!
