During my time working with Philippe at Axis Intermodal/SeaAxis he proved to be a highly skilled and intelligent individual. He used his core skills in credit and collections to build and manage a risk evaluation and scoring matrix that was easy for all to understand, and became the cornerstone of our management and investment processes. His attention to detail and industry experience was also valuable when assessing and negotiating acquisitions and financing options. Philippe worked well within the team environment, and interacted well with the Board and external investors. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.Clive Francis: ex-CEO SeaAxis
I was CEO of GE SeaCo Group from January 2003 to March 2008. Philippe Hoehlinger worked for much of this time as Head of Risk, Compliance, Collections and Billing and subsequently for two years as Business Development and Strategy Director. His approach to Risk was always objective and Philippe was instrumental in designing and implementing a set of new processes that had the benefit of being transparent to the customer and were directly linked to pricing for that customer. The processes were very effective and contributed to reducing bad debt significantly at the Group level. Additionally, his involvement in collections resulted in a sharp reduction in the average DSO. Philippe is a good strategic thinker and fights for what should be done and what is right for the Company. He is loyal, reliable, hardworking, a good leader and competent. I would not hesitate to employ Philippe again.Angus Frew: CEO Bimco
I would highly recommend Philippe. Having worked with him personally, I was always impressed by his ability to get the right solutions implemented. He couples strong technical risk skills including in-depth macro understanding, modelling and governance with great interpersonal skills building strong relationships and really getting to understand business requirements. Philippe is the new breed of risk manager, one who combines technical knowhow and attention to detail with strategic thinking, business acumen and great stakeholder managementShawn Gamble: Chief Risk Officer at Fidelity International
