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.
