Phil leads communications and marketing at Bloq, one of the earliest companies to professionalize blockchain infrastructure and applications. This includes responsibility for the corporate brand and serving as a senior marketing and communications advisor to the company’s diverse spinoffs in decentralized finance, Bitcoin mining, infrastructure, gaming, and more. Among other accomplishments, he led the launch Vesper Finance, which grew into a $1.8 billion protocol at its height, and repositioned the parent company in under 40 days in response to the economic environment of 2020. Prior to joining Bloq, Phil was a senior vice president at Edelman, where he guided the world's largest communications firm's initial explorations across two generational technology shifts: social media and blockchain technology. In addition to leading the company’s global blockchain center-of-excellence, he advised executives on crisis communications, issues management, digital integration, and employee engagement across all of the firm’s industries and practices. In his near-decade in Silicon Valley, Phil worked with startups and world-class companies, most notably the renowned research firm SRI International. Known for industry “firsts,” Phil is widely considered to be the first PR professional to start a blog (2001) and the first to describe and demonstrate the value of blockchain technology in communications (2015). He is a board member at-large for the Association of Cryptocurrency Journalists and Researchers (ACJR).
