He graduated with honors from the University of San Diego with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and was licensed as a Certified Public Accountant in California.

"Philip brings more than forty years of financial experience to his new role as the Company's Chief Financial Officer. His hands-on knowledge and understanding of accounting and finance, as well as his prior experience working with international companies, will greatly benefit Cavico.
