move some furniture. Th e answer was no, so Evans
started P & M Removals with his school friend
Mickey. He later went on to meet and form a partnership
with Richard Levine and in 1973 created
Trans Euro Worldwide Movers.
His drive for excellence and innovation meant
that he continually forced change, notably
developing Europe's fi rst fi re-safe warehouse in
London. Evans instinctively knew the value of
people and encouraged his management team to
excel. By the time he came to pass on Trans Euro
to its new owners, the company had eight offi ces
and employed more than 500 people.
During a period of noncompete, Evans
16
acquired a hotel chain and a crate hire business.
Th en, when contractually permitted, Evans purchased
Interdean Interconex in 2005. He immediately
restructured the company and assembled
a new management team to refocus Interdean
on Europe. Under Evans' guidance, Interdean
thrived, and as with Trans Euro, he forced change
and innovation with a continued focus on quality.
Evans sold Interdean in 2011 and resigned as
chairman in May 2012.
Following the sale of Interdean, Evans didn't
stand still. He acquired majority ownership of
the U.K.'s largest nightclub business and assumed
a nonexecutive directorship on the board in
December 2011.
In 2014, the yearning to return to the moving
industry proved too great, and Evans purchased
Momentous Moving Excellence and rebranded
the company as Momentous Relocation. In
October 2016, he purchased Abels Moving
Services and Gerson Relocation, establishing these
iconic brands within AGM Group. In leading
AGM Group, Evans also launched Global Moving
Services in 2018 and acquired the assets and
business of Bishop's Move and Dijkshoorn in the
Netherlands in 2020.
Led by Evans, AGM Group now owns and
operates seven relocation brands, employs more
than 300 staff , and remains a key supporter of
innovation and service excellence within the international
moving industry.
" Paul's passing came as a great shock to all of
us, " says Russell Start, AGM Group managing
director. " Paul will not only be remembered for his
drive, energy, and success in the moving industry,
but importantly as a man with integrity and a great
sense of humor. We will all miss him and never
forget how he encouraged us all to be the best we
could be. "
Evans was a workaholic who left limited time
for hobbies, but outside of business, he had many
interests, and he especially enjoyed nature and
wildlife and loved fi ne food. He also enjoyed rugby.
He loved fi lms, his favorite being Cinema Paradiso,
and he grasped every opportunity that he could to
go to the cinema-regardless of what was showing.
But-unequivocally-his greatest love of all
was for his daughters, India and Charlie, and his
grandchildren, Sienna and Harrison.
In his offi ce is the following quote attributed to
Abraham Lincoln: " In the end, it's not the years
in your life that count. It's the life in your years. "
Evans certainly lived up to that.
Following his passing on 16 March 2021, a
private family funeral took place at his church in
Hampstead, London, on 7 April.
