Culture and Values

What Make Us
Uniquely PPM

At PPM, our values guide our internal conduct and help define the type of relationships we share with our investors, affiliates and other valued partners. We attract and retain the right people who believe in our culture and take ownership for delivering results.

We pursue professionals who exhibit humbleness, directness, and dedication. Our communication style is informal, we encourage open collaboration and give our teams the freedom to speak openly and share new ideas. This philosophy has been serving us well for decades: creating a low turnover rate and a high average tenure.

Above all, we’re passionate about giving back to our clients, to each other, and to our community.

Our values are reinforced in our culture every day and help us achieve our primary goal, "To be indispensable to our clients."
