Paul Swann

Paul Swann

Managing Director

Paul co-founded E-zec in 1998 with a vision to operate a quality, patient focussed ambulance service for both NHS Trusts and private sector customers. Starting on the road as ambulance personnel, Paul recognised the need within the industry and started reinvesting the profit back into the business. This allowed it to grow and flourish and take on new talent on the way. Paul is now the MD and his vision to operate a quality service is still visible and embedded across all of E-zec’s operations.
