Paul Benner

executive director, Production
| show patrol

Hometown: Elgin, IL

Paul first joined automätik back in the aughts and, after a brief two-year hiatus where he mingled in the aftermarket auto industry, he’s leading the charge as the Executive Director of our Production team.

Having worked on many different rungs of the company ladder during his time at automätik, Paul knows what each department brings to the table and how all systems mesh to create a memorable event. His time span has allowed him to rub elbows with each of our clients, and he loves matching new vehicle technologies with cutting edge production offerings.

When Paul steps away from “patrolling” automätik’s vast production and event directives, he knows that all work and no play make Paul a grumpy boy. Accordingly, Paul channels his passion for Arizona State University sports with tailgates and throat wrecking cheers, unwinds with a decent size film library, and spends time with his lovely wife and three amazing children.
