Phil Skingsley, Chief Manager ASB Bank Investments, is retiring. Phil will be missed by many, although he's capable of being grumpy, especially as recently he's steered his team through a range of changes as ASB re-engineered the investments part of it's business by creating ASB Group Investments by bringing together investment management functions from both the bank and Sovereign.
But this post is filed under food and drink because Phil is also a man that knows how to have a good time - but he is canny with it. Occasionally he's shared his encyclopedic knowledge in this area with delicatessen tips, and recently even tips on good audio/visual systems. We may spare you that in this blog - but if you're really keen you can email me. If Phil's future exploits touch on financial services more directly - I'll let you know.
Best wishes to Phil.
