In 2009, the founding partners of the Drake Wellington Group of Companies decided to draw on two world-renowned historical figures and several of their traits and accomplishments in naming the firm.  


British Explorer, Sir Francis Drake, considered the first European explorer to discover the present-day British Columbian coastline in the 1500s, and fill in the map on this little known area of the New World. He led one of the earliest expeditions to circumnavigate the globe in a single expedition and his entrepreneurial nature, his efforts to explore and discover, shaped the early history of modern-day British Columbia.

The second figure, Arthur Wellesley, the 1st Duke of Wellington, was a military and political strategist in the 1800s and twice served as Prime Minister to Britain. He was able to overcome astounding odds in as many as 60 famous battles, by employing unique and defensive strategic methods to win battles with far fewer men and resources than his opponents. One of his legacy accomplishments was in achieving an unlikely victory against Napoleon in the battle of Waterloo in 1815 and became one of the greatest defensive military commanders of all time.
