Paul Nixon


Currently I run operations for two US based companies, one established and one start-up, working with some of the largest trading firms and exchanges in the  US. My roles cover Finance, HR and Information Security across both companies. I joined the PTA in March and was elected Treasurer.  

Originally from Palmerston North, I moved to Auckland 25 years ago and have spent most of my time here living in East Auckland, currently residing in Orakei.  I love living close to the ocean and the CBD. I share custody of my daughter and our family time is immensely precious to me. She is in her second year at ANI and  we are grateful for the opportunities to learn and grow that the school provides.  

My original background, post-graduation from Massey University, was in HR. Following my move to Auckland, I worked for 3 years at Telecom in project  co-ordination roles prior to spending 20 years in the fitness industry. While I enjoyed my time in the fitness industry, I was ready for a change and in 2017, I  completed a copywriting and online marketing course and set up my own business. This morphed into an opportunity to work with a friend of 25 years based in the US, which I have been doing ever since.  

I am passionate about learning and personal growth and am always willing to take on new responsibilities and recommendations for books! I am an avid supporter of the Black Caps and the All Blacks and have a general interest in most sports, cricket being my passion. I played competitive cricket for Eden-Roskill  for 23 years and now play T20 for Cornwall, purely for the social and camaraderie aspects.  

I’ve enjoyed my time in the PTA so far and look forward to making further contributions to its benefit.
