"Of the many Student Partners I have managed over the past four years, Phillip Bach undoubtedly sets himself apart as one of the best. Perhaps the best example can be seen in campaigns focused on viral marketing. Phillip was able to generate nearly 50,000 views from around the world, wherein other MSPs drove a fraction of the amount.

He has a well-rounded understanding of technology, and has helped brand perception of Microsoft to a positive light. Because of his stellar performance, he was one of a few selected from around the world to represent the Microsoft Student Partner Program at the Worldwide Partners Conference in 2011.

More than anything, Phillip is a conscientious individual who is both humble and secure in his abilities. He has no desire to brag or show off in regards to his accomplishments, but will let his accomplishments speak in his stead. He has been an invaluable asset to the team and program."

January 2010 - June 2011, Wilson managed Phillip at Microsoft

Partner Group & Sales Team

InQuira

Rix Kramlich

"Phillip was an intern in the partner development group here at InQuira for the summer of 2010. He reported directly to me and he performed a wide variety of duties, but was primarily responsible for evaluating, defining, executing and rolling out a new automated process to manage the partner sales process. This was a strategic initiative that had executive visibility and allowed Phillip the opportunity to develop a business process, work with Sales Operations to implement the process in our CRM system and deploy it across the company. The net result was an automated system to manage our partner business that will help the company succeed and scale in the years to come. I would recommend him with no hesitation and wish him the best of luck with his continuing studies!"

July - September 2010, Rix managed Phillip at Inquira
