Additional Information

Philip Woodhouse has had a long and close working relationship with the City going back to 1974 when he first worked as a messenger. He returned to the City in 1979 and worked on the Commodity Futures Exchange in Mark Lane trading cocoa, coffee and sugar. He worked at E D & F Man for 18 years until 1997 before moving to Tate & Lyle until 2002. He then re-established his family’s commodity business, which can trace its origins back to 1750 in St Dunstan’s Hill.


His many years of commercial experience, both in the City and overseas (including living in Nigeria for five years) give him the skills, knowledge and contacts to act in your and the City's best interests.


Current Chair of The Livery Committee. Past Master of The Grocers in 2012/3.


He is widowed with 3 sons, the eldest and youngest now also working in the City.
