Phil has over two decades of combined experience in Services & Support while working at IBM and Lenovo. He has collected a large number of hats over the years. Along with a few gray hairs.
Phil started his career with IBM as a Technical Information Developer in the mid- 90s and Web Content Program Manager, moving into a Product Development Team Lead role in the early 2000s.
When the sale of the IBM PC division to Lenovo was announced, Phil played a key role as a Program Manager guiding the separation of this multi-billion dollar business unit and its integration into the global Lenovo organization from 2005- 2007. From 2007 on he served as the Director of Service Business Transformation, until assuming his current role as the Director of Web Strategy in 2014.
As his career path illustrates, Phil is always up for a challenge and constantly looking for a better way to build a better mouse trap. A natural connector, he enjoys working in a fluid environment, interfacing with multiple, varied teams in a matrix environment.
In his personal life, Phil’s interests outside of work include any type of outdoor adventure. He has jumped out of perfectly good airplanes as well as off of an equally perfect bridge restrained only by a large rubber band around his ankles. Phil has also gone on a solo bicycle trip covering 600 miles in 7 days. His passions are travel and photography and his 30,003 step children. Three of these are human, who stay in their rooms most of the time experiencing the “internet of things”… the other 30,000 are busy bees that reside in two hives in his backyard where they spend all their time pollinating and making honey.
