In 2011 Paul White and Paul Davison founded PPWD.  We wanted to create a business that reflected our values.  Consequently we have built a business with an absolute focus on our clients needs, a business that takes a long term view and a business that values long term partnerships rather than short term profit.  We believed that if we value the relationship between us and our clients and us and our associates then success would follow. These beliefs still underpin everything we do today.
