Rawcliffe & Co are thrilled to announce our latest appointment- Phillip Owen, who is joining our team as Corporate Finance Consultant.
Phil decided to take early retirement from Barclays this summer after 36 years service with the last 15 years being Corporate Relationship Director in the Lancashire and Cumbria Team. Retirement is not really the right word as he has been asked by many of his former clients to continue working with them in a consultancy/non exec director role. He has a saying that business leaders find it lonely in business. Phil gets great satisfaction coaching, mentoring and playing the devils advocate with businesses to make sure they perform at the highest level.
Phillip said.. ” I was delighted to be asked by the Directors of Rawcliffe’s to become their Corporate Finance Consultant. This was a particular honour for me as my father had been senior partner at the firm for some 40 years.”
As well as having other business and property interests with his wife Louise, he is also a Governor at AKS Lytham and sits on the board of Blackpool Fylde and Wyre Credit Union. With all these activities, retirement from Barclays has been no pipe and slippers moment for Phil!
