Phillips Connect Technologies (PCT) has promoted Bill Ellis to president. Ellis joined PCT in 2017 as managing director of the newly formed company.
The company says Ellis has been instrumental in leading the effort to create the first open platform for intelligent trailers, chassis and containers, and directed the formation of important supplier partnerships and oversaw the recent acquisition of Connected Holdings.
“This is the first time in our 91-year history that we’ve had a non-Phillips family member earn a president’s title,” says Rob Phillips, PCT CEO. “Bill has earned that milestone through his incredible work ethic and the inspiration he extends throughout the organization. Bill has been the primary catalyst and driver responsible for most of our forward progress at PCT.”
Prior to joining PCT, Ellis launched multiple start-up companies and oversaw international investments and business strategy deployment.
