About Philip

I am a Principal at a Private Equity Firm called Endurance Partners. I am responsible for sourcing, closing, and monitoring investments in middle market industrial, consumer, and business service companies in North America. Please feel free to reach out to me for career or investing advice, assistance with learning advanced investment concepts for transitioning or enhancing a career in financial services, or business advice.

I live in New York City. I'm a former collegiate athlete and still enjoy playing golf, tennis, hockey, and lacrosse. I'd be happy to connect over the phone, over coffee, or over a beer.
