Prior to joining Accenture, Phil has helped reshape business operations and strategy consulting organizations at Visa, Bearingpoint, and Citibank. As Partner at Bain & Co., Phil led west coast financial services helping to grow the value of client customer franchises – and therefore the businesses themselves. He believes now, more than ever, that purpose-centered, innovation-enabled enterprises will lead growth in human terms around experience, diversity, and sustainability.

Phil’s personal philosophy, “that purpose-centered, innovation-enabled enterprises will lead growth in human terms around experience, diversity, and sustainability,” is aligned greatly with recent research initiatives from the Center for Customer insights. Faculty Director Ravi Dhar notes that, “Phil’s life-long commitment to drive growth and strategic change across industries is what makes him an excellent candidate for the Executive Fellow Program at the Yale School of Management. As an SOM Alumnus, Phil is uniquely suited to engage with students and guide them in applying their learnings in a practical way.”

Based in San Francisco, Phil received an MBA from the Yale School of Management with a concentration in Strategy and Finance and a BA in Economics from University of Pennsylvania. Currently, Phil is currently Yale SOM’s Executive Fellow and has served on numerous educational and social service non-profit boards.
