Deputy CEO Phil Morgan to depart from CIPR
After nearly 9 years at the CIPR, Deputy Chief Executive Phil Morgan will leave to become Chief Executive of the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine.
Phil Morgan joined the CIPR as Director of Policy and Communications in January 2011 and was promoted to Deputy Chief Executive in 2014. In each capacity, he has worked with successive Boards and Councils and served many hundreds of CIPR volunteers across the UK. He has been responsible for public relations, policy, marketing and events as well as overseeing Influence magazine, leading on strategic development and working on significant governance reforms.
A Chartered PR Practitioner, Chartered Manager, CIPR Diploma graduate and a member since 2005, Phil also served as Chair of the Construction and Property Sector Interest Group and on the CIPR’s National Council, before joining the staff.
I am very grateful to the CIPR for some incredible opportunities over the years. I have worked with some brilliant people on the CIPR’s Board and Council and I will miss being a member of team. I would particularly like to thank Jane Wilson, former Chief Executive, who took me on in 2011 and Alastair McCapra, whom I have thoroughly enjoyed working alongside as Deputy CEO
We wish Phil and his family all the very best for the future. I’m sure all members of the CIPR and our staff will want to join me in thanking him for serving the organisation for nearly a decade. Staff particularly will miss his energetic commitment to professional development.
Phil Morgan will remain in post until December.
