The Douglas Bader Foundation is delighted to be able to announce the latest member of our wonderful team of Ambassadors. We were honoured when Paul McNeive accepted our invitation to become a DBF Ambassador and very happy to welcome him to the team. We very much look forward to working with him and know he’ll be an invaluable support to the charity.
Paul McNeive is a double amputee and is believed to be the first double amputee in the world to gain a helicopter pilots license. As a boy Paul was fascinated with aviation and the story of Douglas Bader and coincidentally Paul suffered the same injuries as Douglas Bader (right above knee and left below knee amputations) following a fire, aged 20.
Paul is a chartered surveyor and was 28 years in the property business, latterly as managing director of Savills in Ireland. He now works internationally as a motivational speaker, author and journalist.
Paul is on the board of Ireland’s National Rehabilitation Hospital and the National Rehabilitation Foundation.
I am honoured and delighted to be an Ambassador for the Douglas Bader Foundation and look forward to helping to inspire people with disabilities, as I am inspired by Douglas Bader and many others. Paul McNeive
