His 35+ years of energy experience include executive leadership, energy trading and marketing, contract negotiation and administration, wholesale back office operations, interconnection, power system planning and systems development.

Early in his career, Phil worked for General Electric, where he was involved with utilities nationwide on a range of planning and strategic issues.

He is a founding member, past Chairman and member of the Executive Committee and Board of Directors of the National Energy Marketers Association, and is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
