Phil Griffin

Founder Director Phil is a man that loves a challenge. Each year he completes a 'magnificent feat of strength and endurance'. In 2010 Phil and his son Sam cycled from Buckingham Palace to Venice, travelling through 10 countries in just 10 days. In doing so they managed to raise enough money to restore the sight of almost 100 blind people.

In October 2007 Phil walked the famous Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea. This is where in WW2 the Australians, heavily outnumbered, fought and beat the invading Japanese. The challenge involved travelling on foot for 9 days through pristine tropical mountain rainforest and staying in remote tribal villages, each with its own language! Papua New Guinea has thousands of remote tribal groups and 576 languages are spoken.

In April 2006 Phil cycled over the highest mountain road in the Americas, the 16,000 foot Punta Olimpica Pass in the Peruvian Andes. In previous years he has ran Marathons, completed very long walks, cycled John o'Groats to Lands End etc. Phil also treats the business as a challenge, and he is determined that Open Solutions will always be the best company in its field.

Phil began his IT career back in 1977 at the Control Data Institute in Manchester. He is the author of Gpos and OSIS and is heavily involved in further developments of these products, making sure that the software remains ahead of the competition.
