Comment from Paul Haynes, Operations Director at Key Control Services
On the 19th of February 2023 we were brought the sad news that Phil Thompson had passed away. The outpouring of condolences and tributes that have since been received from the business community across the North West have been truly overwhelming, a testament to how highly he was regarded and respected by so many.
Phil was a dedicated advocate in his commitment not only to the successful business he headed up for over 25 years – Key Control Services Ltd, but also in his support of SMEs across the North West, indeed he was heavily involved with the FSB for many years. Phil thrived in business and lived an enjoyable, full life with many friends in business and personally. An engaging character, his belief in unconditional reliability, integrity and trust were displayed and upheld throughout his working life.
After a distinguished career in the Police spanning over 27 years, in 1998 Phil founded Key Control Services providing Security Services to businesses and domestic clients throughout the Northwest, growing the business steadily to the business it is today. In Key Control Services Phil leaves behind a strong and committed business that will continue his great work going forward.
He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
