Phil Eckardt

Finance Director

Phil is Finance Director at Seven Hills

As a highly-experienced chartered accountant, Phil has a deep understanding of fast-growth businesses, providing strategic insight and management information to advise company decision making.

During his six years in-practice, Phil worked predominately for SMEs, 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 a top 40 firm of chartered accountants, Mercer & Hole, in an audit-focused position, Phil made the switch to industry. He has since worked within the London media and marketing space with Interpublic Group in a financial reporting role, working with agencies such as Golin and Weber Shandwick, before joining Seven Hills in 2014.

Prior, Phil spent six months working as the finance manager of the self-funding wing of a children’s charity in Sierra Leone.

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