We’re delighted to hear that Forever Manchester’s President, Phil Jones has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list in recognition of his services to business.


Phil, Managing Director of Brother UK is one of the most prominent business leaders in the region and earlier this year Brother UK became only the second company in the UK to achieve Investors in People Platinum status. Phil has lead Forever Manchester’s call for businesses to reset their thinking on corporate social responsibility.

Phil said: “To be recognised by Her Majesty the Queen is wonderful. I’m passionate about business as a force for good in people’s lives and in our local communities. CSR is moving on. It is still relevant, however, its scope has extended to citizenship, talent and employee attachment”.
