Following a successful year of growth, Ridge and Partners LLP, based in Winchester, has promoted David Johnson to the position of equity partner.

Our people are at the heart of our success and we are truly delighted to be able to recognise this by making significant promotions across the business. 2018 was a fantastic year for us and we have already kick-started 2019, embracing many more opportunities for growth in the year ahead.”
