Philip has worked in recruitment and executive search since early 2007 when he joined a boutique Oil and Gas Industry-focused firm in Houston, USA. Later that year he opened the company's first office in Africa, based in Johannesburg, from where he successfully executed several executive and technical leadership search assignments for their African and international client base. In 2011, Philip relocated to Singapore to build the company's Asian operations. He developed a track record of success in the execution of senior level assignments across the Asia Pacific region, ranging from searches for regional leadership and technical leadership roles in E&P companies, Oil Field Services, Consultancy Firms, EPC and Subsea as well as regional leadership for Private Equity Backed portfolio businesses. He also completed Commercial and HR localisation searches in India and Angola for international clients.

Prior to moving into executive search, Philip served in the South African Foreign Service, both in South Africa and India, followed by roles in sales and risk management. He holds a BA Degree from the University of Stellenbosch, majoring in Political Science and an MBA from the University of Strathclyde in Scotland.
