Phil spent most of his professional career as a second-generation owner of Cooper Pest Solutions, running it with his brother Richard, a world-renowned entomologist. Along the way Phil experienced the bruises of a family business along with the incredible rewards, growing it from 7 employees to 110, becoming the 54 largest company out of 20,000 pest control companies nationwide.
Along the way, the company won many awards to include, The NJ Family Business of the Year and Innovator of the Year. Despite the success, Phil knew his company had hit the ceiling. In 2015 he developed his Leadership Series as part of his WOW principles and introduced it to Cooper Pest Solutions. At the same time, he introduced to the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) to Cooper and learned how a complete system can supercharge a business. Cooper Pest experiences increased growth and increased earnings, leading to an acquisition by Terminix in 2018, securing his families future.
Now Phil takes his learnings, his bumps, and bruises as well as achievements to bring the Leadership Program to small and medium sized businesses looking to take their companies to the next level. His EOS practice is focused on the Philadelphia/NJ-metro market, but the Leadership Program is nationwide.
Phil’s passion to excellence, teaching and coaching makes up his style. Phil’s combines his knowledge of service-based companies with his extensive network of subject matter experts as a foundation to bring Evolve YT to life. His energy exudes to each person he interacts with making his sessions powerful and energizing for the teams he is working with.
When Phil is not working, he can be found cycling, using the platform to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis and Runaway Children, building on his bike ride across the country in 2012, from Virginia to San Francisco.
