Founded by the staff of Drew Management and Associates in April 2000. The Company was formed on the retirement of Ralph Drew from the day to day involvement in the consultancy business he co-founded in 1973. Ralph continues to be involved on a part time basis, as the need arises. Each of the Associates, Peter Fox and Patrick Madigan,have at least 15 years experience in Distribution and other areas and have been operating mainly throughout the U.K and Republic of Ireland, although recent projects have taken the group to mainland Europe and the USA.
