Philip Clarke

Technical Specialist

Philip is a digital and software technical specialist at ForrestBrown. In addition to a management and computer science degree from Aston University, he has more than 20 years’ industry experience. This has been spread across software houses, systems integrators and digital agencies. Philip has a particularly deep knowledge of Microsoft technology stack, PHP and Java.

Much of Philip’s experience has been spent in senior roles such as head of technology and technical director. In these roles, Philip tended to be involved with the application of technology rather than its development.

This meant he was solving problems for clients by bringing in the right technologies, working with content management systems, architecting solutions and managing the specification, build and delivery of digital platforms. Today, this gives him great insight into the true level of R&D that ForrestBrown clients are undertaking on their own projects.

Philip has worked on systems integration within financial services and managed large system projects for household names like Sky, Red Bull, Honda and Sainsbury’s.

Our clients find Philip an invaluable resource in understanding exactly where their work fits within the guidelines for R&D, which helps them to optimise their claims.
