Phil’s story – Born and raised in the Bronx only a few blocks away from Yankee Stadium, I grew up watching the pursuit of excellence first hand by an organization that has won 27 World Series Championships. I have worked in and managed warehouses of all types from vaults storing memory chips to operating over 700,000 square feet of coolers, freezers and dry racking. Along this journey of over 25 years I have also performed every warehouse job function and have extensive experience in warehouse layout, slotting, cross docking, inventory control, safety, employee retention and value added services all of which make your operation stand out. Recently completed my Six Sigma Green Belt certificate from Villanova University in 2010. I can help you get the flow back into your warehouse.

HAVE YOU? Does your company have a active safety committee? If it does, do you participate? Why not. Poll your fellow workers to see if there are issues not being addressed and present them to the committee with suggested solutions. Safety is just as much your part as it is the company’s. If you don’t have a safety committee start one! Speak to your H.R. department and manager to get one going. Need help starting a safety committee? Contact me
