Paul Atwell

Chairman and Founder

The Veritas story started with Paul, and to this day, he remains an integral figure here at Veritas. His vision for the company continues to guide the way we work and the exceptional service we strive to deliver.

The recession of 2008 kick-started Paul’s entrepreneurial spirit, as he realised there were many properties that were tenanted and could become vacant, which would subsequently need to be managed, secured and maintained. And so, Veritas was born.

Growing the company and service lines over 14 years as Managing Director, Paul is proud to have handed over the day-to-day running of Veritas to our CEO James Gay. Paul now splits his time between his three businesses, but as company Chairman, he remains in close and regular contact with the Veritas Board of Directors to consult on key strategic decisions.
Prior to Veritas, Paul built a substantial property portfolio within Atwell Martin Property Management. He further developed the company proposition and is now heavily involved in building the rental portfolio of private professional and student accommodation. With this wealth of hands-on experience of the property industry, and a deep understanding of the unique requirements of landlords, administrators and receivers, Paul’s vision continues to guide us in delivering excellence for our valued customers.

Paul has loved sport since his school days, so when not in the office, you’ll find him boating, running, playing golf or out on the tennis court. The teamwork element of group sports really resonates with Paul, and is something he’s worked diligently to integrate into the Veritas culture from the top down. A firm believer in the ‘door always open’ policy, Paul is never too busy to chat, listen, or roll up his sleeves and get stuck in.

At weekends, you’ll often find Paul and his family on a muddy dog walk in the countryside. Those clients who know us well will probably already know Paul’s Labradoodle, Rufus - he’s a very familiar presence around the Head Office! A huge fan of the sea, Paul will jump at any opportunity to escape to Dartmouth with family and friends, enjoying watersports by day and great food by night.
