Paul arrives at Mako having held several senior management roles, most recently as Executive Director of Ecopoint Limited, an importer and distributor of LED lighting for the commercial sector. He was also CFO and General Manager, Commercial, for Glengarry Hancocks Limited, New Zealand’s third-largest wine and spirits distributor.
In other prior roles, Paul was CFO of Medic Corporation, and Financial Controller of Westpac Financial Services. Paul started his career at Deloitte, where he spent 13 years, including eight in Southern California working with high-tech companies.

Mako Networks CEO Bill Farmer says:
“Paul’s deep experience guiding the operations of leading New Zealand companies is a significant advantage for Mako Networks, as we enter a period where his skills will be needed to assist in guiding the company’s direction. With his analytical expertise, Mako will be better able to plan and respond to the company’s growth for the next several years, with an eye toward responsible oversight and operations. Paul has joined us at the right time, and it’s rare to have an executive with his credentials available to join the team. We welcome him onboard.”
