Paul Bennett is the co-founder of Perchpeek, the digital relocation agent.
Prior to founding Perchpeek, Paul was a business development executive at Amazon. During this three years there, he moved from B2B sales to the team that launched Amazon’s Treasure Trucks into the UK. He led the Treasure Trucks’ biggest ever, Star Wars-themed event in Trafalgar Square, in partnership with Disney and Samsung, which attracted over 10,000 attendees.
Perchpeek was created in 2018 when Paul and his two co-founders, Oliver Markham and Dr Aasis (Ace) Vinayak, realised how painful relocating can be. Their combined experience in business development, machine learning and real estate led them to create a UK property marketplace, dubbed ‘Tinder for renting’. In 2020 they pivoted the business in response to the specific pain points many people experience when relocating. Perchpeek now provides an end-to-end relocation service for a new generation of relocators - those who can work from anywhere - as well as helping some of the world’s top companies attract and retain top talent.
Paul studied PPE at Oxford, gaining two blues in Field Hockey whilst there. Post-university, he helped organise travel expeditions like driving rickshaws across India. He is a keen ultra marathon runner, winning the 100km Jurassic Coast Challenge race in 2019.
