Meet the team.

Paul’s twin brother Joe (yes, they work great together) joined Acuity in 2011 when the team was looking for an operational boost. Since then, Joe has acted as a partner in the business, managing the day-to-day details and establishing streamlined back-end operations that allow Acuity to be as responsive and agile as possible.

When he’s not crunching the numbers, Joe spends quality time with his wife and dogs and pursues his passion for travel.
