Paul Eitel VP of Business Development - Kima Commercial
Originally from Cameroon, Africa, he grew up in Texas and in Wake Forest, NC. Growing up with a strong Christian background, Paul has traveled to nearly every continent as a missionary with a passion to help others change their lives for the better.
While initially drawn to a military career during his college years at The Citadel, Paul was offered a promising career at a respected construction firm in Raleigh, NC. In his ten years as Project Developer, he enjoyed helping clients plan, design, and build more than $100 million dollars in projects. Co-founding the Wake Forest based Focus Design Builders, Paul and his partners wanted to create a commercial construction company in which the customer was the top priority. As CEO of Focus—and with his background in commercial real estate—Paul partnered that same year with Coldwell Banker Advantage as VP of Business Development. In these dual roles, Paul has capably served the commercial real estate and commercial construction needs of many clients. He looks forward to continuing to assist those with commercial real estate needs as the VP of Business Development here at Kima Commercial.
Paul and his wife, Lori, have lived in Wake County for more than twenty years are thrilled to be raising their five children. Paul has had the pleasure of being able to travel abroad as a missionary and of serving his community as the Wake Forest Fire Department Chaplain, through several leadership positions at his church, and through his volunteer work as a Past President of the Wake Forest Kiwanis Club and other civic organizations. He is grateful for the opportunities the Lord has given him, and is looking forward to see how else he can serve!
