In total Phil has over 20 years experience in the world of consumer insights and marketing research. Prior to joining Winkle Phil spent 5 years at Reckitt Benckiser: as a global category research director he was responsible for global research across both the fabric-care (Vanish, Woolite, Calgon) and home-care (Air Wick, Mortein) categories. Previously he was at SC Johnson, leading market research on the furniture & floor category at a regional level for 2 years.
