Profile of Paul Dewison
Paul is a leading base metals industry consultant, focussing in particular on copper, nickel and on their downstream markets. Expertise spans other metals as well, including iron ore / steel, aluminium and zinc. Paul’s work ranges from commodity market analysis and forecasting to highly granular analysis of the industries that use metals. Clients worked for include mining companies, financial interests, metals processors and industrial companies, and industry associations. As well as hands on research, Paul has been successful in business development and in managing a consulting and publications business in both large and small firms. Having graduated from Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge University with a degree in Geography, Paul Dewison followed on to work for a number of the big names in metals consulting. These included Commodities Research Unit and Brook Hunt (now Woodmac). More recently, having run his own consulting firm Metalica Ltd., Paul moved on to Bloomsbury Minerals Economics (BME) where he ran the copper publications and downstream consulting sides of the business. In 2013 BME’s reports and consulting business was bought by Intierra, a business that became a part of SNL Metals & Mining in 2014. At SNL, Paul managed a commodity reports business, initiating the roll out of multi-metals and single metals publications similar to those in copper as well as continuing to work for single clients. In May 2015, Paul left full time employment at SNL to set up MetalsPlus Research & Consulting.
