He has also held the top position at Analex Corp., serving as chairman and CEO between 2001 and 2007, prior to spending three years as a venture partner at FirstMark Capital.
Phillips previously drove growth over two years as chief executive at GTSI and catalyzed that company’s close to $77 million sale to UNICOM Systems in June.
