A self-confessed and enormously experienced “bean counter”, Phil nonetheless owns a sharp wit and some very un-bean like talents. From Chartered practice to senior roles in Dyson and the Securicor Group, he went on to lead a management buyout with a specialist telecoms infrastructure company and subsequently achieved 15th place in the 2004 Sunday Times Profit Track 100 listings. Having achieved a footprint in over 70 countries, the company was successfully sold to an American equity house.
In search of new challenges, Phil went on to build upon his success, focusing his talents in the construction and property development markets and has accumulated nearly £60m of completed corporate finance transactions.
In his spare time, Phil enjoys shooting and motorsport and used to compete in rally sprints. Medieval history occupies quieter, reflective moments and this creative energy combined with an assiduous accounting brain allows him to take a very holistic approach to the companies he has worked for – bringing those “beans” to life.
