As Business Development Manager at two of the largest Age Concern organisations in the country, Phil has over ten years experience developing both commercial and charitable services.

Commenting on his appointment Phil Hughes said: ‘I am delighted to be taking up my new role at NEBDN, and look forward to working with such a dedicated team at what I feel is an exciting time.’
NEBDN Chairman, Beverley Coker said: ‘I am delighted that Phil has been appointed as Chief Executive. The interview panel was very impressed with the skills and knowledge that Phil had developed through his role at Age Concern.
These skills will be important in leading the organisation through the changes that statutory registration brings. His work in the charity sector will bring a new dimension to the organisation. I would like to add my personal congratulations to him.’
