Paul is recognized as having excellent customer service and staying up to date with current state rules and regulations when it comes to the purchasing process. “On the many instances when we have a question or concern, Paul is only a quick phone call away and can not only quell our unease but does so with a happy disposition unmatched by many at UTSA,” said one of his nominators.
