Ideaworks are delighted to welcome Phil Cotton as our new Commercial Director. Phil joins an established team of directors with over 130 years of experience at Ideaworks.

Phil has been a part of the custom install industry for over 15 years having started as an engineer then moving to London to work as a Senior System Designer before going on to start and run an established London integrator. Having already been in the post for the last two months, Phil reflected on the opportunity ahead:

“I feel honoured to be invited to join the Board of Directors here at Ideaworks. Their commitment to delivering the ultimate quality and experience to their clients, coupled with an innovative and progressive ethos has seen this company lead the industry in creativity and technical brilliance for the last 30 years.  I am excited to help drive the business forward. I also love the collaborative and family vibe the company has.”

Phil joins Ideaworks at an exciting time as we continue our international growth with projects in locations as diverse as New York, Monaco, Azerbaijan, Germany and of course our home and where it all started, London.

Phil added, “Very few home and superyacht integration companies offer genuine international services.  With permanent bases and team members in multiple countries we offer a truly multi-lingual and multi-currency proposition to our clients.  This presents its own challenges from a financial, commercial and legal standpoint – but if it were easy everyone would do it!  Ideaworks has the skills, experience, infrastructure and scale to deliver any project, of any size, anywhere in the world – and that is incredibly exciting to be a part of!” 

Phil holds a Master’s Degree in Electronic Engineering with first class honours.  He now specialises in financial planning and analysis, which ensures the company continues to prosper while delivering substantial value to our clients.


Welcome to the family Phil.
