Professional HE Services (PHES) is an umbrella company for membership organisations in Higher Education. Currently PHES is the corporate “parent” of four Special Interest Organisations (SIOs); the Association of University Directors of Estates (AUDE), the British Universities Finance Directors Group (BUFDG), the Higher Education Strategic Planners Association (HESPA) and Universities Human Resources (UHR).
PHES is managed by an Executive Board supported by an Executive Director:
- Gill Ball

The Directors delegate responsibility for day-to-day management of the associations to the most senior member of staff working on behalf of that association. In practical terms, the PHES Operations Director (Dominic Fryer) manages the shared back office functions.
