We’re delighted to welcome Paul O’Shea as our Head of Property Management Accounts.
We asked Paul to do a little Q&A so you could get to know him a little better.
Tell us a little about your career journey to date:
I started my career journey working for a property developer and worked there for 15 years.
I worked through various positions in the Accounts/Finance department whilst completing my ACCA exams through college in the evening. Following on from that I then worked in the Coombe hospital for a year followed by the Mater Hospital for another year. I then moved to F&C REIT Asset managers who managed the property fund for Friends First and then transferred into Friends first after 2.5 years. I changed from the Property team to Treasury and then Friends First were bought by Aviva 2 years later and was there for another two years before joining Knight Frank.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
Well I’m a numbers guy, so this is an ideal fit for me! I really enjoy working with clients to maximize the return on their investment. The people in Knight Frank have been very welcoming and I’m really enjoying getting to know the team.
