Paul Jones

Managing Director

Too long in the tooth to miss a trick, Paul has been the heart of defacto since forming the company in 2003. Initially providing an exhibition and museum design and fitout service, defacto grew rapidly as our clients asked us to spread our wings. Throughout all of these changes, Paul has kept his passion alive, striving for new technology to blend with craftmanship. When not working he can be found windsurfing, mountain biking, or breaking out some moves on the dance floor.

Paul Hinson

Site Manager

Working with us is the organisational whiz Mr Hinson. Adept at many things his skillset as Prince 2 Practitioner enables all of our projects to run along smoothly, safely and of course on time and budget. Paul is also a mean whiz with a grill, knocking up a great bacon butty.

Kester Black

Company Secretary

Keeping us all in order with a firm hand and a sharp vocal instruction is Kester, working part time to allow her to study and raise a family. Having been with the company since inception her role has changed over the years, having been trained in AutoCAD, Photoshop and Illustrator she can occasionally be seen burning the midnight oil.
