It is with deepest sadness that we share the news today that Phil Baxter, the owner (alongside his wife Alison) and CEO of CVP, passed away suddenly on Wednesday 4th September.

Phil leaves behind a company that has gone from strength to strength since he started it in 1986. In recent years the company has grown to over 90 staff in six locations with a turnover of £55m. Phil's desire for CVP to be the leading supplier of broadcast products and solutions, resulted in him creating the industries most comprehensive and informative website, a highly skilled service orientated workforce and most recently Iris, the only industry magazine that is written by technology users.

Alison, Hannah and Chloe would like all donations to go to the Make A Wish Foundation.Phil had wanted to get involved with this charity in order to give poorly children the chance to get a ride in his fantastic cars. We know that he would be truly happy to see donations to go to this cause.

Thank you all for condolences they are very much appreciated by his family and all his staff at CVP

We've been overwhelmed by the support we've received.

Thank you all very much.
