About the founder.
Born in 1964 in Elizabeth North to Irish-German working class parents, Paul Adolphi is a proud South Australian. During the boom period, Paul moved with his parents to Whyalla, where they lived until the closure of the shipyards in 1975. The 70’s were a tumultuous period in Australian economic, social and political history; the closure of the Whyalla shipyards, the OPEC oil shock, rampant inflation, no fault divorces, and the sacking of the Whitlam Government to name a few. It was also a highly turbulent time in Paul’s personal life. When Paul was 10 years old, his parents divorced and his mother moved to North America, where she would live for the rest of her life, only visiting Paul and his sister, Michelle, occasionally.
During his formative years, Paul was raised by his father and step mother. At the age of 16, he left home and went on to complete an apprenticeship as a fitter and toolmaker. With two left thumbs and a busy mind, Paul soon realised that he was yet to find his calling in life. It wasn’t long thereafter that Paul returned to complete his secondary schooling with flying colours, and continued onto university, where he became the first of his family to gain a University and Honours Degree.
Over the course of the past 20 years, Paul has carved out a successful career working for some of the world’s leading healthcare companies. He has built his own businesses providing on-site Health and Fitness to staff at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and Flinders Medical Centre. Throughout his working life, Paul has been driven by a desire to improve the health, well-being and quality of life of others. It is no coincidence that Paul has chosen to open his first medimart outlet in Elizabeth Vale, a stone throw from where he was born. It is an opportunity to give back.
Now, at the age of 53, Paul is the first to point out that his best days are still ahead of him!
Paul is the proud founder & CEO of medimart; a multi-channel business providing medical, mobility and therapy product solutions to the general public and healthcare industry, and co-founder of Australian Global Healthcare Alliance (AGHA); a company bringing together Australian medical healthcare networks, with healthcare organisations and service providers in the Asia-China-Pacific region.
Paul’s personal background and life experiences have helped shaped his vision; to build companies that employ Australians from diverse backgrounds, who share his values of community, compassion and acceptance, and who work to the best of their ability for the customer they serve.
