Phil Buckle has retired from his position of Chief Executive of leading UK charity, Electrical Safety First.
Phil, who has led the charity for over ten years, has seen it grow from a niche organisation into one of the UK’s leading consumer protection bodies.
“I am, of course, sad to depart from the organisation but I leave with great satisfaction at what has been achieved”, says Phil. “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.”
During his tenure, Phil 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 firmly on the media and political agenda.
“We would all like to thank Phil for his hard work and dedication over the last decade”, adds Chair of Electrical Safety First’s Board, Alison Parkes. “Phil 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.”
