Paul Hoffman, Les Hoffman’s son, was with Orange Research since its inception in 1963.
When Paul was 13, he started doing odd jobs in his father’s basement, where the company began. This led to working at the company during his high school and college years, as the company continued to grow.
Paul received his Bachelor’s degree in 1973 from the University of New Haven in Business Administration. In 1978 Paul became General Manager. In 1989, Paul was named President & CEO of Orange Research. He retired from the company in 2021.
As President, Paul made a number of structural changes to the company, investing in people and equipment that would allow for strategic growth and a more modern approach to operations. He led the company’s Lean improvement efforts and directed the company to develop many new products that appealed to existing and new customers.
Paul was on the boards of numerous manufacturing associations and the local Chamber of Commerce, often serving as president. He also served on various State of Connecticut and local industry and manufacturing advisory committees.
