Purple is one of five founder-led companies to have sold “significant stakes” to Together Group. The list includes:

  • King & Partners, a strategy, branding, creative, marketing and eCommerce firm located in L.A. and Miami.
  • Noë & Associates, a brand strategy, design, content and production agency in London and New York.
  • Construct, a female-led creative consultancy and agency known for the creation of iconic brands like Aman, Claridges and Frette.
  • Hot Pot China, a digital-marketing specialist with offices in London and Shanghai.

With these additions, Together Group intends to be a one-stop solutions for all design, technology, marketing and communications clients globally.

Our work

We acted as exclusive financial adviser to the shareholders of Purple on their partnership with Together Group.

We were delighted with the advice and support we received from WY Partners throughout this process. Throughout, they offered valuable and reassuring advice ensuring our interests were represented with professionalism and a personal approach. WY Partners is a company that I would not hesitate in recommending to any business owner about to undertake a similar process.
