Paul Ruddick

Managing Director

BSc (Hons), MSc, MRICS

Paul has been involved in the construction industry for the past 20 years, and has etched a reputation for himself and for his enterprise with his positive and proactive leadership.

After undertaking initial training as a Chartered Quantity Surveyor (MRICS) and Project Manager with Davis Langdon, Paul left to found Reds10. Since that small beginning in 2005, he has gone on to show the power of a can-do attitude, building Reds10 into a leading Design and Build Modular Contractor with its own factory.

Paul’s experience has enabled him to have a clear insight of what is required to achieve the complete success of a project. He has ultimate responsibility for overseeing all projects in their entirety, to ensure they are completed on time, within budget and to the highest quality.

In 2009 Paul also set out to address a personal frustration: many young disadvantaged Londoners could not get into construction apprenticeships on the large regeneration schemes happening on their doorsteps. Paul founded social enterprise K10 to tackle the issue.

After four years of great success, in 2013 Paul stepped back from the day to day running of K10 and appointed a new CEO to drive the social enterprise forward. He remains a Non Exec Director and Major Shareholder but is now focusing fully on the day to day running and future growth of Reds10.
