The Phoenix Group would like to congratulate Director of Zulu Joint Integrity & Training Ltd, Christopher Mellows, for recently becoming a Fellow member of the Chartered Management Institute (FCMI).

The Chartered Management Institute is the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence. Fellow grade is the highest grade of membership awarded by the institute and is only given to those who have demonstrated experience in leadership, performance-driven management, and are operating at the highest strategic level. It requires a management qualification at degree level/equivalent, and a minimum of 10 years’ management experience, three of which must be at a strategic level. This grade carries entitlement to use the designatory letters FCMI and is granted by a CMI Assessment Panel.

The Phoenix Group of Companies value Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as it is evidence of our competencies and experience within our respective group company services.

Well done Chris!
