Paul Stanley

Background & Experience

Paul has over 25 years experience in the property industry, and, as a founding director of Coplan he is motivated and dynamic with a wide knowledge of the real estate and consultancy fields. Prior to setting up Coplan, Paul was founding Director of a niche corporate property consultancy where he established a successful £2m business. Paul managed thousands of properties for PLCs, Investors, Third Sector and Occupiers. As a management consultant working in the property sector, Paul had a good understanding of how a robust consultancy process works and how it “fits” with different organisations.

At Coplan Paul was involved in the acquisition and subsequent lettings/sales as well as management and disposal of a £20m South West London Commercial Space portfolio. This involved numerous occupiers in type and sizes and required a real understanding of operators’ businesses.

Paul enjoys both the marketing and asset management side and is heavily involved in  Sutton and Barking and the Company’s operational businesses.

An avid West Ham Utd fan,  Paul is much happier managing Coplan’s assets as they are much more successful… But what isn’t!!
