Paul Conroy - Projects Manager
As Projects Manager, Paul leads the projects team on all installations, new constructions and refurbishments for projects big and small. His days are filled with everything from project deadlines and organising labour for sites to organising and implementing designs with the team.
His start in the fire industry began early in life:
“I was born into fire. Both parents worked in it, so I grew up in it. I’ve been involved within it for my entire life. I knew what a sprinkler head was from the age of four. I love the industry – I find it stimulating. My career has taken me all over the world on a lot of exciting projects.”
After working with major corporates for the majority of his career, Paul wanted a change. He found DEM and appreciated the family-run business for its culture and values. When describing DEM’s ultimate business goal, he says:
“To set ourselves apart. We have an opportunity to control and define what we do and how we do it. We have like-minded people who don’t want to compromise. They just want to install, maintain and service to a very high level. At times we see compromise in the wider fire industry. We don’t do that. We set the bar very high and we don’t tolerate shortcuts or breaches of compliance. In short, we deliver absolute excellence.”
In addition to his passion for the industry is his passion for horse racing, “I get a big kick out of seeing good horses running. It gives me joy and a bit of buzz…”
