What drew me to Christensen is not just its strong financial standing, but also its dual commitment to financial and people development. This is a company that understands the value of investing in both.” – Scott Phillips, Christensen CFO

Scott succeeds Dan Breen, who has served as CFO for nine years and has been instrumental in Christensen’s expansion and success.

“We have seen the company grow, mature, and achieve many milestones, both financially and in terms of people development.

I am confident that Scott will build on this legacy and guide Christensen to even greater heights.” – Dan Breen, former Christensen CFO

With Scott’s forward-thinking approach and Christensen’s robust financial foundation, the company is well-positioned to navigate the complexities of the current economic landscape and seize emerging opportunities.

“Effective leadership is about planning for the future while executing in the present. I’m not here to maintain the status quo; I’m here to help propel Christensen to new summits.” – Scott Phillips
