"The success of any business comes from leadership that creates a compelling vision, sound plan and tolerates neither egos nor passengers."

Paul Lyons is an experienced Chief Executive with twenty five years tenure in running two international recruitment businesses, Michael Page International Asia Pacific and Ambition; during what some would say, and to quote Charles Dickens,  “…the best of times, it was the worst of times.”


After qualifying as an accountant in the UK, Paul moved into executive recruitment with Michael Page International. For the next twenty five years he was a Chief Executive, ten years with Michael Page as the Asia Pacific Regional Managing Director and the next fifteen as Group CEO of Ambition, an international listed recruitment firm he jointly founded and built in 1999.
