Nicholas Pearson, Chairman, Nicholas Pearson Associates

I established the company 35 years ago because I wanted to focus on first rate design within an environmental context. I also wanted to provide a vehicle for people’s professional ambitions.

Today, I am as keen as ever that we continue to promote excellence in all we do within the context of a caring and compassionate approach to life.
