CEO Retail Pharmacy, Lovelace Health System
Over the past two year period, I have worked very closely with Philip on several initiatives at The Reading Hospital and Medical Center. During that time period, we have developed a strong relationship that has enabled us to successfully tackle many initiatives. The following are what I find to be his key strengths: 1. Truly a motivational leader. Philip is especially strong at motivating a team and facilitating meetings; 2. Extremely detail oriented-although Philip is a visionary leader, he never loses his focus on the details of the HR function.
President, HR Consulting Firm
Philip and I worked together for approximately two years. I was impressed by his depth of knowledge in all Human Resource matters. He was a creative leader with the vision to see practical solutions to difficult problems. More important, he had the people skills necessary to implement those solutions.

As a Corporate Director at McLaren Health Care is was responsible for creating, developing and executing an HIRS system from the ground up with very limited resources. As a VP of HR for VNSM he worked diligently with the CEO/President to establish the Human Resources Department as a Strategic Partner. In the process he developed his staff to take on the more strategic responsibilities associated with this role. Philip’s strengths are his creative visionary leadership and ability to collaborate to achieve strategic initiatives and to develop people in the process.

I had the pleasure to work with Philip at two Ascension Health organizations and it was always an asset to have him on the team! Philip is a clear sighted HR professional with great skills at mediation. He helped me through two of my toughest career challenges in my 20+ years of management. He has a knack for problem resolution, technology enabled HR direction and contributions to the executive level of the organizations that made sense. He also has a great sense of humor and realistic approach to the daily issues. He was and is a trusted ally, colleague and friend and will be comfortable in almost any situation.
