The Phillips Group’s purpose

To improve its client’s bottom line by hiring the best talent in the world.

The Phillips Group beginnings

The official beginnings of TPG started well before its date of inception. It begins with the journey of its Founder, Carl A. Phillips.

Phillips’ first career was in the military where he was a Major in the Artillery. After a short period of time, he was selected to participate in the appointment and development of officers to meet the military’s fundamental need for first class leadership. He was ultimately involved in the selection of future Generals.

The Phillips Group Expansion

In the 1990’s the firm expanded its reach across Canada and North America. New offices were set up in San Diego and New York City. The brand spread across Canada with offices in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Vancouver. In the 2000’s the firm was well established with a long tenure and it opened its doors to the UK and Middle East markets.
