A story of business partnership and friendship that has evolved over the course of their relationship.
Us media can announce the engagement of Adele and Rich Paul following a beautiful proposal and a beautiful day.
It’s a business lunch that began way back in 2009.
Adele, who was living in New York, was looking for that occasional special business partner. Not what you think.
Enter Rich Paul, the owner of G2 insurance agency in Greenwich Village.
“My main thing was that a business partner had to be smart and business savvy”, said Adele, “I knew that Rich is.”
Adele did some research and found out that Rich’s family owned an insurance company in Montclair New Jersey. Rich Paul was naturally intrigued.
“He came to my office and then I went to his office”, explained Adele, “It was early in the morning when we met and we just clicked. We were both in our early 30s, very passionate about music, our culture was very similar and it was love at first sight”.
The two spent a year and a half working together in New York ,before taking a leap of faith and starting G2 Insurance Agency in Greenwich Village , in 2010.
