Philip Parker began his career as an apprentice coat maker in January 1964. He joined Henry Poole & Co in 1980 and became Managing Director in 1998.
In 2007 Philip became a Fellow of the Textile Institute and he is also a longstanding Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of the Merchant Taylors.
Having worked with Newham College for the past five years developing the relationship with Savile Row, becoming a Patron of the Learning Revolution Trust seemed the natural move forward for Philip.
The Learning Revolution Trust is a charity that aims to remove the financial barriers to education faced by many people in East London.
