Councillor Phil George

  • Chairman of East Donyland Parish Council
  • Member of the Finance & Personnel Committee
  • Member of the Maintenance Committee

I am an experienced project manager and marketer with a broad range of management experience and have enjoyed a varied career in videographics, event management and gardening. Having reached the dizzy heights of Marketing Director for an International Events company I switched to working in the public sector where I design and run events for Local Authority Chief Executives as well as running a small garden maintenance business. I am passionate about effective communication to achieve success and enhance the communities in which we live and work and as a Parish Councillor am involved in some of the less visible processes that a Parish Council is required to have.

My wife and I moved to Rowhedge around 12 years ago from Wivenhoe and have now raised our daughter who attended St Lawrence school. My role as a senior IT manager with the East of England Coop has I feel provided me with the skills to help the Council get to grips with procedural and technical aspects of Council life as well as on-going maintenance and planning issues. Like all Rowhedge residents I love our community and want to see it flourish and prosper for all.
