In 2010, he
entered into a strategic partnership with Ben Silverman's Electus and helped them start an international division and spearhead a scripted series initiative.
Prior to Engine, Philip was President of Worldwide Sales and Distribution at Power Television, based in London.
increased the company's revenues and successfully pitched and secured a 13 episode series order from NBC for "Crusoe" (which he also executive produced) as well as a two part mini-series entitled "XIII: The Conspiracy".

managed a library of more than 10,000 hours of film and TV programming ("Jurassic Park," "Gladiator," "Fast and the Furious," Law and Order", "Monk"), restructured the sales and administration teams for his
region, and closed significant output deals with broadcasters, which resulted in exponential growth for the company.
