Phil Jones

Senior Innovation and Growth Specialist

“I help companies to recognise & understand their strategic challenges and assist them in the systematic process of successfully addressing the risks & opportunities associated with those challenges.”

Phil started his career in civil and structural engineering, design and construction in heavy industry and the mineral extraction industries, progressing through technical and management positions to become regional manager for Scott Wilson plc. His industrial experience was broadened by working in multi-disciplinary environments where he acquired skills in process engineering, particularly in the design of food waste by-product manufacturing and fine chemical manufacturing environments, such as Bio-Isolates, MSD, Parke Davis and Warner Wellcome companies.

He has led design teams in the delivery of new projects, improvement programmes, new product / new service delivery and facilities management. Phil is an experienced project and change manager in the food and pharmaceutical industries, with experience of clean manufacturing and GMP.
