For the past 6 years Philip has been highly active in the outdoor & sports industry; working on all sides of the business from inside buying for a 7 store outdoor chain, online sales in the cycling industry for The Pros Closet, to outside sales in the run channel for industry leader Pearl Izumi. This work has taken him from Texas, to Colorado, to Alabama, and finally to Asheville NC. 

Philip’s prior 10 years were spent running a prominent live music venue in Austin Tx. Add it all up so far and it’s over 13 years of creating work and gaining knowledge around one’s passions.

 “Philip is a great addition to The Mann Group team. His industry knowledge and owner mindset will be the perfect partnership with any retailer who is wanting to grow their business through GEAR. “ Dan Mann, President.
