During his tenure, he has overseen the charity extend its influence into government policy; establish a major product safety conference; and create a series of campaigns placing product safety on the media and political agenda.
Phil said: “I am, of course, sad to depart from the organisation but I leave with great satisfaction at what has been achieved. And I would like to thank my colleagues for their dedication and support in helping to make the charity what it is today: a key player in UK consumer protection.”
Chair of Electrical Safety First’s board Alison Parkes added: “We would all like to thank Phil for his hard work and dedication over the last decade. He has been in the role of chief executive at the charity during a period of intense change – yet one in which the organisation has always punched above its weight. He is leaving the organisation with a recognised reputation in the field of electrical and consumer safety.”
