Philip met Robert Mitchell the owner of several Sunbelt franchises over 10 years ago as they were neighbors. A friendship and respect for each other’s interest developed. As he learned even more about the business of selling or buying businesses it was obvious that Philip was a natural fit for the Sunbelt team.
