As well as General Management, Phil is involved in much of Go West’s sales and purchasing activity. Phil loves sports, especially football and running, and is a keen hill walker. His other interests include history (especially prehistoric, Roman and Middle Age history) and languages, speaking German and Italian – and ‘trying to get by’ in a number of others!
