Phil Shumway Background
Philip R. Shumway
Prior to becoming a licensed Arizona real estate agent, specializing in business broker activities with First Choice Business Brokers, and currently with Coldwell Banker Residential, I had over 35 years of sales, sales management, and operations management, with experience in several large technology companies at the Director/VP level. I served in national sales management positions at Apple Computer, Inc. and Fujitsu Computer Systems, and was CEO of a small, public, software company.
For the past several years I have had my own consulting company, Management Productivity Group, LLC, assisting small/medium businesses in the areas of business development, sales and marketing, and growth strategy. I am a former USAF pilot (retired LtCol USAFR), and Past President of both the Child Crisis Center and Child Crisis Center Foundation Boards of Directors. I received my undergraduate degree from Bowling Green State University, Ohio, and an MBA from the University of Northern Colorado. I am married with two grown children (and grandchildren).
Trust, professionalism, and follow through, are the key elements in any profession, and I bring 40 years of experience in those areas to Real Estate. My relationship with Coldwell Banker has allowed me to partner with exceptionally experienced professionals and a company with a world-wide presence, recognized as one of the most ethical companies in its category in the world.
