About Paul Russell
I was born in Mumbai in India to a diplomatic family and I spent an incredibly happy and exciting childhood there, until at 12, I was shipped off to a boarding school in the UK. What a culture shock that was!
I have lived and worked in some incredible places including Hong Kong, Manila, Buenos Aires, Dublin, New York, Washington DC and Oman.
I started my luxury career in luxury hotels and worked for some spectacular properties.
In 2012, with my business partner, I established Luxury Academy and am the Managing Director.
From small beginnings we now have offices in London, Mumbai, Delhi and Visakhapatnam and work with many of the worlds most recognisable luxury brands, designers and companies.
When I’m not travelling all over the world to work with clients, I split my time between London and Mumbai.
