Industrial Affiliate Section

IGEM has a network of Sections that enhances membership by offering a local perspective and enabling involvement with issues in and around the gas industry. The Sections are run by volunteers who organise a range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events and networking opportunities.

Each Section has its own Chair and Secretary to deal with any queries you may have within your area.

Phil Jenkins

Chair - Industrial Affiliate Section

Phil Jenkins

Phil started his career as a 16-year-old apprentice for British Gas Wales in 1977, in the old Swansea Gas Depot.

In 1988, he went to work for the new housing department of BG Wales Mid Glamorgan South offices, before becoming the Service Centre Manager at Barry Gas Depot in 1989. From 2000 onwards, he worked as a senior manager in the emergency department of National Grid, at one time managing the Gloucester emergency call centre.

He is now joint owner the Gas Assessment & Training Centre (GATC Ltd), based in South Wales.

He said: "I have a fairly broad knowledge about our industry and will do my very best to look after the interests of both our Industrial Affiliates and IGEM during my term in office."
