Open Fundraising


Paul Smith

Strategy Director

Paul Smith New

When Paul’s dream of becoming a professional footballer was scotched, ‘data analyst’ was the most glamorous alternative he could think of.

And after cutting his teeth in charity fundraising as UNICEF’s number monkey, Paul moved to Open in July 2010. He can now be found screeching in a highly personalised, data-led, acronym-based language about why very few questions have the answer 42.

In his spare time, Paul uses restaurants, pubs and running to delay DIY projects.
