What our clients
say about us
Gary Davie guided CWP through its transition from being a conventional privately owned company into a trust-based employee ownership model. He provided advice on all aspects of the transaction process, and continues to support us today as chair of our Employee Ownership Trust. At all times we have found that Gary provides clear, friendly and straightforward advice, underpinned by his understanding of both our business model and our company culture.
When my husband Tony and I decided to think about retirement we spent a long time looking at our options. Eventually we came across the Employee Ownership model. Our company, Espace Europe Ltd, has a very loyal staff base and we didn’t want them to be ‘sold’ to the highest bidder. It seemed like the perfect solution. Gary was highly professional and very personable which made the whole process very straightforward. If Employee Ownership is right for your company, I would have no hesitation in recommending Gary to arrange it for you.
