Phil has spent the last 20 years at SVB focused on credit solutions for late-stage and corporate businesses with facilities ranging from bilateral $25MM deals to SVB-Agented $1B syndicated transactions used for general corporate purposes and corporate M&A. As co-head of the Corporate Banking Credit Solutions group, he leads a team covering the East Coast, Southeast, and portions of the U.S. Central regions. His team is responsible for credit underwriting and portfolio management for late-stage and corporate clients through the use of SVB's full debt platform, including bilateral senior debt, venture debt, and scaled syndicated credit arrangements.

Previous to his current role, Phil held positions in ABL underwriting, corporate banking relationship management, and spent nine years in loan syndications most recently as a managing director leading debt transactions across the U.S., UK, and Europe for SVB’s corporate clientele in the technology and life science/healthcare industries.

Phil was awarded the SVB President's Club award which is given to a highly select group of employees who go above and beyond in achieving key business objectives, upholding SVB values, and making unique contributions to SVB’s success. He was also awarded the SVB Core Values award, a distinction that recognizes SVBers who go above and beyond in their practice of SVB values.

Phil earned his BA in Economics from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. During his time at UMass, he was a 4-year member of the men’s rowing team. Passionate about baseball and the life lessons it can teach, he is currently serving on the board of directors for the Westport Massachusetts Babe Ruth League as well as being a head coach.

Phil and his wife, Steph, have been married for 15 years. They have three children. When Phil is not delivering excellent service to SVB clients, he loves being near the ocean, saltwater fishing, and spending time with his family at the beach.
