Mr W Phillips - Local Authority Governor (Chair)
I trained as a Biomedical Scientist. Having been conscripted I stayed in the RAF for 12 years working in various hospitals at home and abroad. Shortly after coming out of the RAF I made a career change into sales and joined a pharmaceutical company, I worked my way up into Sales and Marketing management and eventually became the UK Chief Executive of a US Multi-National. During this time I served on local councils in Porthcawl and then Wallingford, and also spent 3 years as a Governor of Wallingford Secondary School. I changed direction again when I decided to start up my own business a move I enjoyed and has led to my participation in several business ventures at Director level. I became a governor at Redlands in April 1998 and Chair in late 2005.
