Paul Devereux

Paul Devereux is the Chief Financial Officer for StartMesh, which is 'a Global Technology Venture Catalyst supporting the commercialisation of startups post the idea validation stage through to sustainable profitability or a liquidity event'. He has more than 30 years’ experience working across large international corporates, private equity-backed companies and startups, a career that has armed him with an inherent ability to quickly assess where a business is positioned and where value can be added.

Paul is an expert at upgrading and realigning business systems and processes, including the integration of a number of businesses into a global network; having been an instrumental player in several large-scale corporate reorganizations such as the successful launch and rollout of Australia’s largest fuel and convenience retailer (Coles Express) that brought together six privately owned and disparate franchises which controlled approximately 600 sites and 6,000 employees.

Paul is also the son of Rotary Hawthorn member Joe Devereux.
