Philip is a dynamically trained real estate and construction professional, with over 17 years of experience. Philip has an extensive background in the commercial real estate and construction industry, and has managed a significant staff to the successful completion of over one hundred thirty million dollars’ worth of projects. Philip benefits from a degree in Economics and Finance from Kansas State University. He began his management and construction education in the field and worked his way up the lines. His approach to the real estate development and acquisition process is both aggressive and innovative, but based on a solid foundation of time-proven principles. Philip utilizes several elite operating systems to help maintain control over development schedules, budgets, and overall quality of projects and properties. He is hands on from the project feasibility phase to monitoring of every dollar that passes through the project. Philip also has considerable training and experience in human resources, hiring, interviewing, and positioning other professionals where they can be best utilized in an operation. Philip has been involved at various levels of development for hotels, shopping centers, and apartment developments.
In addition to Philip’s development and construction experience, he also was the co-owner of a boutique financial service business for several years. While serving in this capacity Philip was exposed to multiple alternative investment classes (specifically real estate offerings), and the workings of the independent broker-dealer community. While he was not licensed to sell securities, and did not sell any directly, he gained tremendous experience from the observation, vetting, and due diligence of these offerings.
Philip’s memberships include Institute of Management Accountants (IMA), and St. Andrew’s Apostle Parish.
