Phil Eckardt

Finance Director

Phil was promoted to the Board of Directors in April 2016. As a Chartered Accountant with ten years’ experience, Phil has a deep understanding of fast growth businesses, providing strategic insight and management information to inform company decision making.

During six years in practice, Phil worked predominately for SME companies, servicing in an advisory and compliance capacity.  His work ranged from writing growth strategies, to advising on profit extraction and other personal tax planning matters.

After three years at a top 50 firm of accountants in London working in predominately in an audit focused position, Phil then made the switch to industry.  With the exception of a 6-month interim role, working as the finance manager of the self-funding wing of a children’s charity in Sierra Leone, he has since worked within the media / marketing space – first with Interpublic Group in a financial reporting role, working with agencies such as Golin and Weber Shandwick before joining Seven Hills in 2014.

He is a keen tennis player and guitarist (when he finds the time!) and loves nothing more than spending time with his family.
