Paul brings an extensive professional background in education that spans four decades. As Director of Operations for Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) Operations, he leads the business development and client services functions for higher education institutions in the EMEA region. Paul works collaboratively with deans, directors, faculty, and administrators to identify solutions for online learning modules and courses, online assessment services, and support services to meet quality assurance and accreditation requirements.

Paul also liaises with major accreditation agencies, including AACSB, AMBA, ACBSP, IACBE, AABS, to ensure services align with accreditation requirements and standards. Paul takes a consultative approach to working with higher education institutions, including providing his knowledge and insights related to learning outcomes development, assessment, measurement, and benchmarking. He also facilitates workshops and seminars for Peregrine’s partner schools and at academic conferences on quality, learning outcomes, curriculum development, critical thinking, and innovative teaching. Paul earned a Master of Business Administration from Clark University and a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and Communications from Boston University. 

Thanks to his 40 years of professional experience in a higher education environment, he has gained a multidimensional understanding of the challenges confronted by faculty, administrators, and quality assurance professionals. In addition to his experience as a faculty member and administrator in higher education, Paul served as the Director of European Operations and International Development for IACBE for 12 years. Paul’s experience allows him to bring a “practitioner’s perspective”, with a capacity to empathize, ask questions, and listen closely to help him understand more directly what issues or concerns others might have. He enjoys using this experience to make a difference in his job. 

Outside of the office, he is passionate about understanding different cultures and ways of life. He enjoys mastering cooking and is an enthusiastic reader of award-winning novels. He also supports a multitude of humanitarian organizations across the globe that seek to improve democracy, create a more equitable society, and put an end to discrimination.

“Working in higher education provides me tremendous value in that I can directly observe the difference I make in the lives of students by improving the quality of their academic programs.”
