Steve BoltonChairman & Founder

Steve is a highly successful entrepreneur who began investing in property in 2002. Having made his first million before he was 30 through his outdoor adventure and management training business, Steve encountered financial difficulties like many other business owners during the financial downturn of 2001. In what he describes as the ‘best worst experience of his life’ he realised that it was his home that saved him from bankruptcy. As a result, he was inspired to rebuild his fortune on the solid foundation of buy-to-let property investment.

Through extensive research, Steve discovered the robust residential letting model of premium‘Houses of Multiple Occupancy’ for young professionals and set about building his own portfolio. Within a year, he was achieving excellent returns and sought advice on franchising the model to others. Platinum Property Partners was launched in 2007 in conjunction with business partner Richard Davies. Steve’s experience in the sector has now seen him become an industry-leading speaker, property investment expert and author of the highly-acclaimed book, ‘Successful Property Investing: How to earn £50,000 to £150,000 in two to five years’.

Steve aims to help others achieve financial freedom that allows them to enjoy a better quality of life, spend more time with their families and give back to the community. He personally developed the PPP philosophy of Be More, Do More, Have More, Give More.

Steve lives in Bournemouth with his wife and four children. He loves PPP, travelling, boating, fishing, snowboarding, reading and writing – and being the best dad he can be. He believes that anything is possible with the right support and motivation.

Steve HoganManaging Director & Partner

Steve is a highly experienced corporate leader. He has previously held board level positions with major UK and International FMCG companies, including 10 years at Coca-Cola, leaving as their European Services Director.

Steve joined the business as one of our first Partners in 2007. He used our investment model to build up his own property portfolio in Aylesbury, now valued at over £2 million. Steve currently employs a member of staff to manage this portfolio for him, while still benefiting from a generous return himself.

His expert knowledge of dealing with mergers, acquisitions and business recovery enables him to effectively advise and implement improvements to the PPP proposition. He is also responsible for compliance, financial, technical and legal activities.

When him and his wife Linda aren’t travelling the world and adding to their vintage wine collection, they reside in Poole, Dorset.

Richard DaviesGroup Financial Director

Richard is a strategic thinker with more than 15 years’ experience investing in both commercial and residential property.

He set up and grew the short-term lettings arm of a leading London estate agency before becoming a full-time property developer; buying, developing and selling properties across south-west London. He also set up his own business, investing in over £500 million of property in Eastern Europe. As a result, Richard was able to achieve financial freedom by the time he reached 30.

Richard’s hands-on experience of the property market, and his knowledge of the different sectors within it, enables him to determine PPP’s financial strategy, underpinned by the acquisition of property.

Richard has a thirst for adventure and often takes his bike wherever he goes, cycling all over the world. He recently moved to Lymington with his wife Louise and three children, Zack, Felix and India – where there is plenty of room for his dogs and horses.
