The current Chair of our Industrial Affiliate Section is Phil Jenkins. Phil started his career as a 16-year-old apprentice for British Gas Wales in 1977, in the old Swansea Gas Depot. In 1988, he went to work for the new housing department of BG Wales Mid Glamorgan South offices, before becoming the Service Centre Manager at Barry Gas Depot in 1989. From 2000 onwards, he worked as a senior manager in the emergency department of National Grid, at one time managing the Gloucester emergency call centre. He is now joint owner the Gas Assessment & Training Centre (GATC Ltd), based in South Wales.
He said: "I have a fairly broad knowledge about our industry and will do my very best to look after the interests of both our Industrial Affiliates and IGEM during my term in office."
