  • The Republic of Turkey is pleased to have engaged Phillip and his team, as they have demonstrated a unique collaborative culture and understanding of Turkey’s long term goal to create an iconic diplomatic presence in New York City.

  • On presenting Phillip with the William F. Goade award for meritorious service to Cresa:

    “While known as the Godfather of Project Management, he is much more. I am convinced that without the spirit, dedication and passion he has shown, his enthusiasm for expanding us beyond our tenant brokerage roots, Cresa would not have the expanded service lines that we are known for today.”

    Bill GoadeCresa Founder
  • There are all kinds of people who do the same work as Phillip, but I don’t believe that there is anyone who does it with the level of kindness, persistence, and good humor that Phillip consistently demonstrated. When I look back on this project, I consider it one of the best times of my career. I give great credit to Phillip for making it so.

    Leslie R. FosterPresident & CEO
  • I witnessed firsthand Phillips talents and business abilities. Abilities which span everything from HR to Strategic planning to Project Management to Business Operations. He has an entrepreneurial attitude, and can envision a project or idea, he will get the interest of investors, and he will see the project through to fruition. Phillip is an asset to any team, and he always has an optimistic attitude and a willingness to teach.
