Message from our Chairman

Peter Maskell

Peter Maskell
Chairman & Managing Director,
Philips Electronics UK Ltd


“Today, the UK is faced with diverse challenges in economically turbulent times – whether it’s climate change and carbon reduction commitments, an aging population and rising healthcare costs, or simply the desire people have to strike a healthy balance between work and leisure in their day-to-day lives. At Philips, we’ve been closely tracking these emerging trends for a number of years, which has contributed to our clear strategy centred on health and well-being.


Through our business portfolio, focused on our Healthcare, Lighting, and Consumer Lifestyle activities, we’re working to improve the quality of people’s lives by helping find sensible and simple solutions to many of these challenges we face –whether in the UK and Ireland, or in markets around the world.

And thanks to leadership positions in a variety of health and well-being markets – from medical imaging, to lighting, to shaving – we believe we’re well-positioned to team up with our customers and partners in finding these solutions.”
