Phil is a Client Executive at Sempre. With more than 27 years of experience in IT covering both technical and sales roles he understands IT transformation requires more than just having the right technology to succeed. The long-standing principle of people, process & technology is just as relevant in today’s hybrid cloud world as it was back in the 1990s.
Phil gained a BSC(Hons) in Computing & Graphics Technology at Manchester in the UK, with his early career spent in retail & e-commerce in the UK, USA and NZ at companies including Tesco, Tesco.com and Safeway.com. Moving to the world of vendors Phil spent over 13 years in total at CA, IBM & most recently Dell EMC, driving New Zealand’s Data Protection business.
Phil moved to NZ in 2002 and now has 2 young daughters with his partner Karen. Interests include spending as much time in the bush as possible as well as scuba, freediving, wild food & homebrew. Phil also has a passion for DIY and construction, however has finally come to realise his skills in this area have a somewhat limited scope.
