Angie Phillips

Operations Manager and Employee Empowerment Manager


Having built and managed thriving Operations throughout my career, I excel in leadership during operational changes and reorganizations. I have over 15 years of award-winning, high profile experience as an Operational Leader, bringing best practices from multiple areas while working successfully within highly restricted budget constraints. More importantly, I have consistently brought strategy, focus and tactical direction to the Operations I have led while overseeing multi-million dollar annual payrolls. I ask detailed questions in order to see the complete picture, which allows me to implement sound business principles in every area. I manage teams to empower them, resulting in very successful initiatives and consistent team and organizational progress. As a dynamic team leader with a passion for managing all aspects of Operations, and a master of de-escalation, I can put out the fires before anyone knows they were even burning. My work ethic, style and team approach allows you to focus exclusively on what you do best, and my track record speaks for itself.
