Business management

Paul Robson

Paul Robson

Managing Director

Paul stumbled into leasing in 1994; his first finance job was working for a captive manufacturer which led to him working as a broker within the VFG Video Film and Grip rental house. Having gained great experience in the industry, Paul set up Medialease in 2003. These days, he is older, greyer and – in many ways – wiser but still loving the customer and supplier relationship, putting deals together and getting involved in an industry that has provided him with so much. Paul is also a trustee of Backup – The Technology Entertainment charity.
