Paul was one of the most successful company presidents in the multinational Dieppe Corporation. The Dieppe Corporation was a producer of special-purpose manufacturing machinery. It had plants in many parts of the world and each one was called a “division.” Paul Upper had been with the company throughout all of his professional life. He had joined the company in England as a junior drafter when he graduated from one of that country’s finest technical colleges. Over the years, he had risen from that job to engineer, then to design manager, and general manager. Then about five years ago, he was promoted to be the president of the company’s largest machine-building division in Europe.
