Phil Jackson dies

Phil Jackson died on 3 February, 2011, he was a few weeks short of his 70th birthday.  Phil had been in the moving industry for 46 years.  He started his career with Cox & Kings and then Smith & Herbert prior to its acquisition by Trans Euro in the 80s and the acquisition of Trans Euro by Amertrans and subsequent formation of TEAM Relocations. Until his death Phil had remained an important member of TEAM and had only recently considered slowing down to a three-day week.

Phil was always smiling, always immaculately dressed and ever the charming sales professional. He was a pleasure to work with and will be sorely missed, not only by his colleagues in TEAM but also in the industry globally where he made many friends.

Phil’s family is planning a memorial service that will be held in London in the near future.


Editor's comment: I worked with Phil at Trans Euro in the late 1980s and early 1990s. We were in different departments so we weren’t close, but I knew him as a thoroughly good chap who was always ready with some sound advice or a helping hand whenever it was needed … which was often in my case. The good die young.  Steve Jordan
