Meet the team - Paul Starbuck
We’re back again with another addition in our “meet the team” series. Today we are delighted to introduce you to one of our directors, Paul Starbuck.
Tell us about your role at LK2?
I head up the retail and town centre regeneration team which is a challenge in today’s retail climate. Luckily one of LK2’s areas of expertise is identifying new solutions and ideas for developers and retailers alike, which is starting to attract a lot of interest from the market.
What’s your favourite project you’ve worked on so far?
I’d have to say the Buttermarket shopping centre refurbishment in Ipswich. This required a new, radical way of thinking to create a viable solution and was a real challenge for the team at LK2 to design and then build a very complex project all within 18 months.
What’s been your top highlight while being with LK2?
Seeing the team grow and flourish is easily my overall highlight of my time with LK2. We now have a really vibrant mix of skills, personalities and ideas while still maintaining the business’ original family feel. I’m very excited to see the team grow even more over the coming years, especially as we continue to grow and develop our London office alongside our Lincoln HQ.
What’s your favourite artist or album?
Being a youth of the 70’s, I still love the old classic rock bands and their modern counterparts. My favourite current artist is Steven Wilson – the most successful artist no one has heard of! He never stands still and you can count on him to provide a fantastic live show.
If you could be a superhero for a day, what would your superpower be?
It would definitely be to be able to play a musical instrument, preferably the guitar to an alien standard. Unfortunately, that takes hours of practice and hard work as well as natural talent so people just have to put up with my inept fumblings on the guitar instead!
What do you like to do at the weekends?
If I can, I like to do something active like mountain walking or cycling or house and garden renovation. Saturday night is often beer and curry night where I prepare some sort of special concoction from scratch. Sometimes, it’s even edible!
We hope you’re enjoying our “meet the team” series as much as we are. Stay tuned to find out more about our team soon.
