Phil is keen to ensure that Flygt builds on its current success, he explained: “Being new to the industry I anticipate a steep learning curve in a few areas! The key will be to listen well. I want to analyze the business from several viewpoints that will help me gain quick insight and provide data for sound decision making.
“My short-term aim is to add value to Flygt’s business as soon as possible and over the longer term I want to ensure on-going competitiveness. My goal is to align all the energy, talent and expertise in my teams to ensure that we remain the leading suppliers in our field and achieve the highest levels of service to our existing and prospective customers.”
