In 1997, Paul acquired Wanamaker Ticket Agency located in Philadelphia. He became one of the leaders in the industry.

Among his many charitable pursuits, he served on the board of Father Martin’s Ashley, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility located in Maryland. He was also a long time contributor to the Shining Star organization that raised funds for the March of Dimes.
