He cites his account-leading experiences as being the most informative aspects of his career, including; BMW, ‘one of the most educational’, The Guardian, ‘one of the most fascinating’ and Pepsi, where he managed a two year programme across Latin America, as ‘definitely the most fun!’
In 2010 Phil became the CEO of Arnold KLP; a challenge that he considers the most exciting of his career.
