Meet The Team
Behind Our Name
Though none of us here are named Austin, Davis or Son, each of these are real people – our influences and our family.
The “Austin” in our name was Dad to Eve and Uncle to Angela. Austin died unexpectedly on New Year’s Eve 2018, around the time the idea for forming this company came into fruition. There were many happy coincidences that happened at that time, and we like to think that Austin had a hand in it – there can only be so much happenstance surely?!
The “Davis” in our name refers to Angela’s grandparents. Nanny and Grandad were two of the loveliest people. They encouraged us to set goals and ultimately instilled the work ethic which has helped us to achieve what we have with the organisation to date.
“Son” references the young, Master Jack Michael David Bailey. Jack is Angela’s son and her daily motivation; the company name would have been incomplete without him there.
