BMD family devastated by loss of long-time friend Paul Green

BMD and the Power family is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Paul Green. A long-time friend of BMD, our relationship with Paul spans decades. From his time playing school football at Wynnum High, to his coaching roles at our partner organisations, the Wynnum Manly Seagulls and the North Queensland Cowboys and more recently, his work to assist our business with the development and rollout of an employee engagement and wellness platform. Chairman Mick Power AM said the news has left him, and both the Power and BMD family in shock. “It’s a sad time for everyone. For the rugby league fraternity, which Paul was devoted to as a player and then coach from such a young age, but also for the Wynnum Manly community of which he and his family have been enormous contributors. Paul has left a lasting impact in one way or another on the lives of so many people. “To me personally, Greeny was a mate. I hold him in the highest regard and have long valued his friendship and loyalty. I have followed Greeny for more than 30 years in all his endeavours, from sponsoring him as a player in the Under 16’s Wynnum Manly Seagulls, to our major sponsorship of him as a coach at the Cowboys and the Queensland Maroons. “He was a high achiever, talented in so many ways and I admired him for his unique ability to influence everyone he came in contact with. Our deepest and heartfelt thoughts are with Amanda, their children Emerson and Jed, and the extended Green family,” he said. Chief Executive Officer Scott Power said while BMD has been a supporter of Greeny for decades, he has been a leadership and high-performance coach in the business for the past two years. “Most recently Greeny has been coaching our leaders and his tragic loss has the entire BMD family hurting. His legacy will be left in the employee engagement and wellness program he has engrained in our business. “Our most sincere condolences are with the Green family and friends. We have lost a true legend and are focussed on supporting our people to come to terms with this tragedy,” he said.
