Association celebrates Paul Leslie’s long career

Posted on : Wednesday, 11 April 2018

Fire Protection Association Australia (FPA Australia) would like to thank Paul Leslie of Xtralis for his long service to the industry, following the announcement he will retire in July.


Mr Leslie has made significant contributions of his time and expertise to the industry, most recently with positions on FPA Australia's TAC/1 and TAC/2 committees, as well as serving as the Chair of the Queensland Leadership Team.


"Paul has given so much back to the industry, and we've been privileged to work with him over so many years," said Matthew Wright, FPA Australia's General Manager - Technical Services/Deputy CEO.


"His knowledge and contributions in the aspirating smoke detector field in particular have been a real asset to the industry through his involvement with FPA Australia, Standards Australia and the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). Paul has also been a consistent contributor to the broader industry beyond his core skillset, however, and has devoted personal time and effort in supporting improved understanding and collaboration amongst those involved in the fire protection community."


In recognition of his contributions, the Association presented Mr Leslie with the Meritorious Service Award in 2011.


"On behalf of a grateful industry, we offer congratulations on a successful and meaningful career. Thank you, and all the best for your well-earned retirement," said Mr Wright.
