Paul Hanlon has been in the exhibit and event industry for over 35 years, creating and expanding two multi-million-dollar companies in the process. A true entrepreneur, Paul recognized a synergy between high-end architectural millwork and exhibits and events, with both utilizing skilled woodworkers to manufacture quality products. With this in mind, Paul acquired Continental Millwork in June 2009 and has never looked back. Not only has Continental succeeded on its own right without any reliance on the exhibits and events side of the business, but with a shop populated by the latest in hi-tech equipment, it has gone on to produce beautiful craftsmanship for satisfied clients across the country.
Outside of the office, Paul focuses his endless energy in charitable endeavors, most notably as a motivational speaker for at-risk kids. Due to his tireless work in supporting those in need of assistance – both in Massachusetts and his winter home in Florida – that Paul was awarded the President Bush Thousand Points of Light Award in 2002.
When asked why he winters in the Sunshine State his answer is always the same; “I’m done with shoveling!”
