Rush’s Bio

R. Rushton (“Rush”) Paul, Jr., J.D., SPHRRush in conversation
President, R. Rushton Paul Consulting, LLC

I am a past corporate attorney who shifted to leading Human Resources teams in large companies to drive excellence in workplace culture, performance, and engagement. Today I bring over 30 years of experience to my independent consulting practice working with business owners and key executives as a trusted advisor to hire the right people, develop effective leaders, and build teams of high performance and accountability. If your business success depends on people, we should talk.

For what my clients have to say about working with me, see the Client Endorsements page. For examples of my results, see some of my Case Studies.
