About Phil

Interested in meeting developers proficient in any of the following: OpenCV, predictive analytics and mobile (Android and/or iOS - or those brave enough for cross-platform?). Always open to connecting with and helping other entrepreneurs.

I enjoy being a key driver of growth through sound strategic and operational marketing practices in the tech sector. As an entrepreneur at heart, I have a passion for innovation and have been fortunate enough to have worked on solving some of the world’s most difficult challenges, including enabling safer driving through telematics, preventing fraud using predictive analytics, and helping to protect identities with big data. I’m always interested in ideas that will make a true impact in our world and especially those that involve a start-up. Real progress is rooted in doing things that haven't been done before.

Key Highlights:
• 15 years of experience in marketing and technical project management across the information, insurance and telecommunications industries
• Elevated company position in a critical market from virtually unknown to having 46% market share within one year
• Managed a global team of 40 people driving a portfolio of projects totaling over $6M of revenue and supporting over $3.6B of transactional business
• Adept at data management, database development, Android, Java and soon will be trying my hand at PhoneGap
