Chairman’s message

David Thomasson

Phoenix have operated in the Gulf region for over ten years and we are very proud of our achievements. Over this time, we have supported over 3000 individuals to attain qualified professional status on qualifications including ACCA and currently add about 200 more each year. Along the way we have achieved 10+ Global prize-winners and many regional high achievers. We started operating in India some years ago and have now established our own permanent presence in Cochin, with plans to extend our services across India through an online portal as well in addition to face to face classroom training. We see huge potential growth in UK and US qualification based training in India and it is our intention to be at the forefront of this development. We have achieved our success in the Gulf by always putting ‘students first’ and this is the principle that we bring to our India operations. We look forward to supporting our students through excellent customer service, wonderful teaching and an exam focussed classroom experience which has already resulted in many new PFT Affiliates in India. You have my personal assurance that choosing Phoenix for your Accounting education in India will be a decision that you will never regret. ‘Students first’ is not just a motto for us – it is the way we run our business.
