Beyond Wiss

Paul loves spending time with his family and friends. He enjoys coaching and is very grateful to the former Wiss partners and colleagues who allowed him flexibility earlier in his career to coach soccer at Hanover Park High School. He is an avid fan of sports and music. (He is still waiting for his beloved Minnesota Vikings to win a Super Bowl and is still upset at the “phantom foul call” that took place in the 1989 NCAA Final which cost Seton Hall the championship.) He is very grateful for the work that Team Walker does in providing educational and enrichment programs to inner-city youth.


Paul joined Wiss & Company in 1995 and became Partner in 2004. He has held increasingly responsible leadership positions prior to becoming Managing Partner, including Partner-in-Charge of the Middle Market Commercial Practice Group and serving as a member of Wiss’ Executive Committee.
