Founder and CEO
Phil is a New York-based entrepreneur who founded DASHED with a plastic container and a bicycle. It wasn’t long before he took this modest business and turned it into the leading restaurant delivery service in the Northeast. Obsessed with speed, Phil regularly competes in marathons and is a top-20 runner among New York City’s 25- through 29-year-olds in 5K and 10K races. Phil has used his speed obsession to develop his mission statement: getting food to customers faster than anyone else. His need for speed has also allowed for rapid growth. DASHED has grown 2,984 percent and is listed as the 119th fastest-growing company in the U.S. Speed isn’t Phil’s only interest, though. He’s an accomplished writer who has contributed to Forbes, Inc., The Washington Post, Huffington Post, and Fox Business. In his free time, Phil enjoys yoga and playing with his dogs in Central Park.
