For more than 40 years, Phil worked within the bottled water industry in various capacities, and for the past 16 years Phil worked at Blackhawk Molding Co, headquartered in Illinois, US, as sales and export manager.
Phil was an active member of the European Bottled Watercooler Association and International Bottled Water Association (IBWA), and held several positions over the years on the IBWA Supplier and Membership Committee.
Phil was a well-known and respected member of the bottled water industry and a good friend to many in the industry. He will be sorely missed.
I regularly saw Phil Innes at trade shows and conferences around the world, in his role at Blackhawk. He was always friendly, courteous and took the time to talk and he was a great ambassador for both the company and the industry.
He is survived by his wife MaryAnn, daughter Marie, and two grandchildren.
