1st Executive – Our Value

When Michelangelo saw the ‘spirit of David’ in a block of weathered marble in the yard of the cathedral workshop in Florence, he saw what others couldn’t.  His commission embodied, insight, custom design and a result that had proven beyond others. For us, meeting the brief is not enough we have to do see inside the people that we present to find unique value.

WHAT COMES 1ST PEOPLE OR STRATEGY?
