Date of Appointment: July 1, 2014

Education: B.A. in History (UNB) and a law degree (UNB) in 1997.

Experience: He is a partner at the law firm of Matthews McCrea Elliott since the firm’s inception in 2005. His practice has a strong focus on business people and their varied legal needs.

Behind the Scenes: Paul serves on the Board of Governors for NBCC and the Board of Directors for the Knowledge Park in Fredericton. He is a past president of Business Fredericton North and a past member of the Canadian Bar Association (CBA-NB) Mid-Winter Organizing Committee.

Paul on NBCC: "Given that NBCC is in its early years as a Crown Corporation, I am intrigued by the thought of helping and watching the evolution of the Board of Governors and the senior management team in this new environment. Given our region’s potential for expansion in a number of industries, it seems like the NBCC system of training new skilled labour and preparing them for the work force is more relevant than ever."
