Davies Partnership was founded by Chairman Phil Davies in a single room of a barn conversion in Farndon, Cheshire, in 1996 and was quickly joined by Mike Flanagan and daughter Gemma Davies to make up the original Davies Partnership team. Following 20 years of significant growth, Phil handed over the reins to Tony McDonnell as Managing Director in 2016 to take the business forward. Davies Partnership then launched its North Wales office in 2017 to service an ever-growing client base in North and Mid Wales and latterly its Liverpool office in 2019, and very recently Manchester in 2022. The business also underwent a rebrand in 2021.

Tony McDonnell, Managing Director Commented:

Phil Davies has long been known as the absolute gentlemen of our industry, he’s a man who has dedicated 55 years of his life to his profession and his craft. Phil’s been a great mentor and is also a true friend, it’s been an absolute pleasure to firstly work for him and latterly alongside him for the past 20 years. We all wish Phil a long, healthy and happy retirement with Jen and the family.

As we move forward to begin the next phase of our growth, we will continue to make new hires and launch new products and services to meet future demand. We have also set our own Net Zero Carbon target for 2035 and want to help our clients also minimise their impact on the environment too through the advice of our skilled team.

Our team have a rich diversity of skill sets brought together through a shared culture and vision to make a difference to the projects that we work on. We have an eclectic mix of talented individuals at Davies Partnership so the future looks extremely bright. We will dearly miss Phil but this really is also an exciting time for our business and we are all looking forward to what lies ahead!“

Davies Partnership’s new ownership structure includes Tony McDonnell, Gemma Davies, Richard Lewis and Peter Lyke who have all been with the business for some time.
