Guy Pheonix 9.40am - 10.00am

'Don't let cyber attacks destroy your brand (and your business)'

Time: 9.40am -10.00am

Guy Pheonix is Owner and Group Managing Director of the Fresh Mango Technologies Group of Information Technology companies, which includes CCS 2000 in the UK. He is also the owner of a boutique marketing agency in the British Virgin Islands, and was a key advisor from a PR perspective to several companies in the BVI in the aftermath of the catastrophic Hurricane Irma in 2017. Guy holds a BEng from the University of Nottingham and an MBA from Warwick Business School. He started his career with Rolls-Royce PLC as a software engineer, and progressed through several management roles in Rolls-Royce’s diverse industries and geographies. This included stints in Japan and Brazil, finishing at Rolls-Royce with global client responsibility for the marine division.He was an early-joiner of a dot-com company in the late nineties, and subsequently spent several years as commercial director for Alstom in the rail industry.

He then took the plunge to become his own boss, buying a small generator distributor business which he grew for 5 years and exited in 2009. Since then he has been based in the BVI, originally moving there to indulge his love of sailing.

He founded his BVI marketing agency in 2010 and bought a majority stake in the BVI IT Company Fresh Mango Technologies two years later. He has grown the business organically and through the acquisition of CCS 2000 in Ripon in 2015, and became 100% Group shareholder in 2016.

In recent years the focus for Guy and his IT businesses has been cyber security.

Coupling this with his marketing expertise, his presentation at Brand Yorkshire will discuss the challenges companies face from a Brand perspective in the face of incessant cyber-attacks and in the event of a cyber breach.

Guy divides his time between Harrogate, the BVI and (occasionally) Nashville where he is trying to learn to play the guitar. He lives with his super-tolerant partner Jane and their dog Trixie.
