Team TIPCO Spotlight: Rich Phillips
Meet our newest Team TIPCO Employee Spotlight: Gasket and Sealing Product Manager, Rich Phillips! Rich is an industry expert with a thirty-three-year career under his belt. Before joining Team TIPCO in 2015, he spent twenty-seven years as the owner of his own gasket company.
A typical TIPCO workday keeps Rich extremely busy. He makes sales calls to territory managers and manages his own direct accounts, but he also finds the time to work directly with suppliers and his team at the Gasket Shop in Glen Burnie.
His favorite parts about his job are the innovation and problem-solving aspects.
“I like the fact that every day we have an opportunity to fabricate a new or different gasket or sealing product. When it solves our customer’s problem, we all win.”
Outside of work, Rich is often found grilling outdoors (year-round!) or spending time with his family on the Eastern Shore, where he is originally from. Family comes first for Rich, as is evident in his favorite quote from Walt Disney: “The most important thing is family.”
When asked about TIPCO Technologies, Rich referred to the company as “The class of the field.” He continued, “We’re blessed to be in a position to be able to do things the right way.” It’s team members like Rich who enable TIPCO to meet our customers’ needs!
Thank you, Rich for all that you do here at TIPCO. We appreciate your commitment, diligence, and expertise!
