Urban Purveyor Group’s chief executive officer Thomas Pash said, “To be in partnership with PPR is a natural step in growing Urban Purveyor Group across Australia. We were drawn to their creative and innovative approach, streamlined processes, extensive experience as well as their unique national footprint.
