Philip founded Aqua Africa in late 2013 after working in Africa for 3 years as a commercial advisor to one of Ghana’s leading businessmen investing into the agricultural sector. He was instrumental in opening new markets and distribution channels for this agribusiness as well as streamlining the logistical supply chain.

His background had previously been in the construction and real estate development sectors where, until the downturn in the property market, he was Managing Director of Urban Life Developments, a London based company that undertook JV projects in conjunction with ING, Investec, Savills and CBRE. Total development project value was more than £100million.
Prior to this he worked as a Pre-Construction Director and Project Manager for organisations including Kajima Corporation where he worked on a global stage in Europe & Asia building micro economies around Kajima’s development projects totalling over $500million. Projects included The Pan Pacific Hotel, Thailand / The Monterey Hotel, Japan / The London Golf Club, UK.
