Russell Philips Limited (RPL) is a UK registered company that has been delivering high-end business continuity management consultancy in Africa and the Middle East since 2013. The company registered a Branch Office in Nairobi in 2014, and ever since has been delivering business continuity planning and plan authorship, crisis management training and incident rehearsal, and contingency planning for single, high-impact threats to a number of large business enterprises in East and Central Africa.
In mid-2017, RPL was the subject of a management buy-out, and Colin Danvers became the new Owner and Managing Director on 4 September 2017. A former soldier and diplomat who latterly worked in the British High Commission in Nairobi and a long-term resident of Kenya, Colin is fully conversant with the business, political and security landscape in Kenya. With extensive expertise in crisis management and contingency planning honed during 30+ years as a senior officer in the British Army, Colin's unique ability to plan strategically whilst delivering operational effect is much in demand in the business continuity space. His aim is to establish RPL as the pre-eminent business continuity service provider in East Africa.
