From Patty: Phil is both one of Patty's Visionaries and Patty's Pioneers. I've been following Phil's work since the late 1990's when I discovered him at National Semiconductor. Phil developed the most amazing set of customer-centric self-service tools and systems I have ever seen. National's WEBENCH environment became the engine that drove sales at National Semiconductor for two decades. Then National Semiconductor was acquired by Texas Instruments. Phil remained with TI company for about a year.
