Ness is a distinguished leader in the technology and transportation industry, according to Phillips Connect. Ness formerly served as the director of national accounts at SkyBitz. In this role, he excelled in managing sales and customer relationships, establishing strategic account strategies and consistently surpassing sales quotas by 100% for the past six years.

Saer is an accomplished sales leader and strategic business development executive with over 20 years of experience specializing in the Latin American (LATAM) market, Phillips Connect said.
