Dennis Phillips


As senior systems engineer providing application, network and system administration support to the federal agencies, I have built a seventy member technical support unit. This unit is known for its ability to translate ambiguous requirements into a highly functional system serving the user’s needs. A team approach and quality standards for rapid application development and complete documentation supports this capability. Prior industry experience includes serving as Principal Software Engineer developing network communications and services supporting distributed applications. Strong computer science and engineering background coupled with business experience make me uniquely qualified to direct and implement innovative technologies in a rapidly evolving environment.
