Paul Allen

Senior Executive Officer & Global Head of Marketing and Client Service

I am a white, British man who was brought up in the Kent countryside and went to a state school before studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge University.

I joined Colchester in 2010, initially in their London office before moving to Singapore to open their office there. After seven years of immersing myself in Asia, growing the firm’s business and enjoying my friendships in Singapore, I relocated to Dubai to open our Middle East office where I have lived for five years with my long-term partner and our four cats.  I have always been enthused by people’s lives, experiences and what motivates them, and whilst I have a background in science and finance, it is this interest that has led me to my current role looking after my colleagues in the Marketing & Client Service team and Colchester’s global client relationships.

In my career, I have been very lucky to have been supported by those who would judge me on my abilities and as such I am a protagonist for equal opportunities for all.
