We are delighted to congratulate one of our senior partners, Paul Taiano, who has been awarded an OBE in the 2018 New Year Honours List for his services to Drama Training and Horse Racing Welfare.
As a result of his professional expertise and in-depth knowledge of the theatre industry, Paul joined the Board of Governors of The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in 1996 where he went on to serve as Chairman for the maximum term from 2005 to 2017. He was awarded an Honorary Fellowship in December 2017.
His other voluntary positions include acting as a non-executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Jockey Club Racecourse at Huntingdon from September 2009, having been a board member since March 1995. He has also been a member of the BAFTA Finance and Audit committee since October 2017.
As far as we are aware, Paul is the first NLP partner to receive such an award, which is very richly deserved!
