Paul Evans is the co-founder and managing director at Solutions Leisure. A passionate, ambitious go-getter, Paul began his career in the financial services sector. Recognised as GE Capital’s “Golden Boy” of sales, a coincidental meeting with club entrepreneur Freek Teusink on a Hurghada beach saw him make the bold decision to move to Egypt permanently in 2001.
Paul re-established Solutions Leisure in Dubai, UAE in 2011. Identifying a gap in the hospitality industry, not yet developed within the region, Evans and his team tapped into the middle-man sector with the build of Q43 on the 43rd floor of Media One Hotel. Today, the group is the most heavily-awarded in the region, having owned and operated over 34 venues internationally, with seven brands and nine venues in the UAE and an international expansion into Eastern Europe in play.
