At Aston University Philip gained a first class honours degree in Construction, and for a short spell joined the builders, Wimpey, following which he decided he would prefer to work for himself and as the saying goes “the rest is history”! Philip founded Oakapple in 1994 and has managed its growth from modest beginnings to the broad-based Property Development and Investment Group it has become.
His hands-on approach, his enthusiasm, and his drive and determination to succeed are well known to those who work with him. This applies to all aspects of his life, and for many years now, Philip has devoted a great deal of time and energy to supporting charities including Barnardos, for which he is vice-chair.
Oakapple Renewable Energy has a number of PV designers, project coordinators and administrative staff providing valuable skills and support to ensure all projects receive the required service from start to finish.
