Philip leads Telios in all phases and aspects of planning; from strategic, financial, implementation and marketing. Philip brings with him a diversified background from Investment Banking, Mortgage Banking, Syndication, Private Placement, Manufacturing and Trade. He has been involved in a number of successful start-ups and exits and has resided in Hong Kong, Indonesia, India and Romania.
Specifically, Philip moved back to Romania from the United States in 2009 at the wishes of his Romanian born wife, Carmen. Carmen, having been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease in 2005, knew there was a long journey ahead and Philip realized that the best place for her was in her childhood home, even though it would be a sacrifice for him. Philip faithfully cared for Carmen until her death in late 2015. During this time of care giving, Carmen experienced many medical needs and Philip had to navigate the increasingly complex system of getting care. Once his time of care giving was done, Philip committed to starting a company that would improve access to care and give more control to the patient…thus the beginnings of Telios.
Among many other things, Philip is also the Ambassador in Romania for the Purple Angel Dementia Education Movement out of the United Kingdom. He continues to be heavily involved in education for Alzheimer's disease with a specific focus on care-giving for Alzheimer’s patients. He is working in conjunction with HealthCare Interactive in the United States to develop a Romanian version of its training curriculum and is a Certified Dementia CARES Specialist.
Philip has one daughter and resides in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
