is a business results project manager in the Dallas, Texas area.  He is a passionate advocate for using the talents of Project Management Professionals to get things accomplished in the business world with maximum effectiveness and minimum wasted effort.

Phil proudly holds multiple degrees in biomedical sciences from The University of Texas at Austin and the The University of Texas of The Permian Basin. He credits his high school Spanish teacher for his being English/Spanish bilingual.

He began his professional Information Technology career as an application programmer and rose through the ranks of systems analysis, systems design, and team leadership on his way to managing projects in industries as diverse as telecommunication, financial services, mortgage processing, and healthcare.

Phil grew up in the first FM radio station in West Texas and remains connected to broadcasting as project manager and executive producer of high school football on radio and Internet in the heart of the Permian Basin.

He is a Life Member of Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity and a lifelong self-described “serial volunteer” leading networking groups in the Dallas area.

Coworkers have said that Phil Elsner is different from many other project managers because he never forgets that the processes completed in projects are done by real people who deserve to be treated as such and because he believes that keeping a relaxed environment and sense of humor on the job make people happier and outcomes better.
