Nearly 25 years ago Paul Owens a native of Kentucky, moved to WV to play college football where he met his future wife of 20 years, Lori. Following the birth of their two children and a dedicated 8 year tenure as the WV Marketing Coordinator at nTelos wireless, Paul and his family embarked on a new chapter in 2012 when he earned a well-deserved promotion and subsequently moved to Richmond, Virginia.
It was during this transitional period that Paul first crossed paths with James Strum, who facilitated the purchase of their Richmond home. Years later transitioning his career trajectory, Paul moved into a Director role with Sprint serving as the Regional Director of Marketing, overseeing the DC, Baltimore, and Richmond markets. As his children grew older he transitioned to American Family Fitness, where he served as the Director of Marketing for their nine locations.
In recent years, Paul has leveraged his expertise by engaging with startups, providing comprehensive marketing solutions. During this phase, he was fortunate enough to work with a local real estate start-up that ignited his love for the Real Estate Industry. Throughout his professional journey, Paul has consistently excelled in service-based industries, prioritizing the enhancement of customer experiences.
A chance friendship formed between James and Paul, stemming from their shared enthusiasm for college basketball and The Richmond Spiders. Recently, when James was in search of a new Director of Marketing, the timing couldn’t have been better for Paul to join the team.
The Strum Group is delighted to welcome Paul, leveraging his extensive experience to benefit our clients and agents. When asked about his passion for marketing, Paul shared, “As a child, I used to sing along with TV commercial jingles, and I knew then that I wanted to build a career in marketing. The process of taking a product or service from concept to the hands of consumers has always fascinated me. It’s my passion for enhancing the customer experience that drives me to excel in marketing for service-based businesses.”
At The Strum Group, our agents maintain an unwavering commitment to clients, consistently putting their best interests first in every transaction.
