Davies Daniel was formed in 1978 by David Gwyn Davies, a building surveyor, and an entrepreneur, Julian Daniel. Specialising in project management and the supply of building materials in the Middle East, contracts were carried out in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Kuwait, Bolivia, Sudan, Brunei, Libya and the United Kingdom.

During the political transition period in the Eastern Bloc, Julian Daniel started a new company importing materials into the region from the Far East whilst David Gwyn Daniels, with a Lebanese business partner, continued working in the Middle East and Far East and opened an office in Kuwait from which he personally project managed all sites as before, ensuring work standards and compliance.

The original company, Davies Daniel International, was later bought out by the Lebanese partner. David Gwyn Daniels returned to the UK to study for a degree, followed by postgraduate study and entry to the RICS and the Institute of Export.

Davies Daniel was reformed in the UK in 2014 by Giorgi Salaghishvili to provide high quality restoration, refurbishment, maintenance and property management services throughout London. The same ethos and dedication to personal management of projects continues and provides the basis for strong ties with our clients, where projects are efficiently run and completed to the highest standards within budget and timescale.

Giorgi Salaghishvili

Managing Director and CEO

Born in Minsk but raised in Georgia, Giorgi moved to London in 2002 to play football professionally after graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. Following injuries that forced an early retirement, he turned his hand to property, joining Urang in 2007 where he worked to hone his expertise for ten years before committing to Davies Daniel full time in 2014.

Giorgi’s sharp eye and problem solving skills allowed him to manage small to large scale projects, with an extensive portfolio of developments to his name. His additional role as partial head of property management at Urang allowed him to gain crucial insight into the property market in London. Subsequently, this sparked an interest in listed buildings and ignited a passion for the management, refurbishment and restoration of such properties.

As an associate of IRPM and holder of the NVQ7 qualification, Giorgi is committed to the advancement of his craft and is working towards becoming a chartered surveyor by the end of 2021. He takes great pride in his management capabilities and is confident that this may guide Davies Daniel’s expansion over the next five years. His strong ambitions for the company coupled with his sixteen-years of experience both here and overseas give him a competitive advantage.


Charlie Noel-Buxton

Advisor

Having lived in London since he was born, Charlie has been developing property since buying his first flat in Chelsea aged 19 whilst working in the City.

After changing careers in 2000 to focus on property, he joined a leading international property consulting firm. During his 13 years there, Charlie acted on the sale of thousands of properties ranging from studio flats to houses worth tens of millions. He advised individual, commercial and institutional clients on asset management, leasehold reform, valuations, alterations, planning and design. Frustrated with the direction his partners were taking, he left to focus entirely on his property development business.

Charlie was greatly impressed by the ethos, service and work undertaken by Davies Daniel and is delighted to be able to bring his expertise and experience to the team.
