Philip See is the CEO of Firefly Airlines. Prior to this, he was the head of Strategy for Malaysia Aviation Group. Phil's career spans multiple industries and roles from running his own business to being a management consultant.
Preceding to joining the airline in 2004, Phil was with Deutsche Bank as a financial analyst in the London office and a consultant at McKinsey and Arthur D Little covering clients in the Middle East, South East Asia and Malaysia. He wonders why he decided to pursue his degree in Chemical Engineering but he has no regrets and is enjoying every single moment in the aviation industry despite its incredible challenges.
During the weekend, he loves hiking and he teaches Sunday School. His boss wonders how he can take so many holidays because he is obsessed with traveling and taking unpaid leave. He is at the moment in the process of coaxing his boss to give him a 1-month unpaid leave in September to celebrate his 40th birthday for him to do his 2nd pilgrimage on the Camino in Spain.
