Professor Cartwright began his role at the University in August 2020 as a Professor of Practice, and helped to raise the national and international profile of the high-level research undertaken at Loughborough.
He had an exceptional career having previously held leadership roles at Laing O’Rouke, Airbus, and Rolls-Royce JV technology company CFMS. Additionally, he was Chief Technology Officer for the Government’s multi-billion-pound intervention in High Value Manufacturing.
Earlier this year, Phillip was named the new Chair of Lontra, an award-winning technology company based in the Midlands delivering ground-breaking air compressor designs.
Our thoughts and sincere condolences go to the friends and family of Phillip and all those at the University who knew him.
