Paul King, CEO
Board Member, AGGA
Paul King’s career in the glass industry commenced in 1979 when he joined Walsh’s Glass in Western Australia as a Sales Consultant. Two years later he was promoted to Branch Manager, a key role that provided him with the opportunity to gain an intimate understanding of the changing dynamics within the glass industry and the challenges it faced.
When Cooling Brothers Pty Ltd was put up for sale by the previous owners, Paul saw this as the opportunity to realise his goal of transforming an industry by raising the bar on the level of service that (up to that point) customers had been forced to accept. Twenty one years later, not only is Cooling Brothers one of the biggest glass processing companies in Australia, but the Cooling Brothers brand is now recognized nationally through an increasing number of successful national projects.
