"With Philip's expertise in travel distribution strategy, technology and innovation, Sphere will continue to relentlessly pursue our vision of becoming the ubiquitous solution for virtual tour delivery within the travel, tourism and hospitality space," said Sphere Founder and CEO Charles Armstrong. "It's a powerful statement about the future of Sphere to have Philip join our team."

"Technology and innovation have unleashed new power for travelers," said Philip. "Travel brands must leverage that power and constantly solve new and difficult customer needs. Charles is a visionary helping travelers make more confident booking decisions. Even before the company swept the awards at The Travel Innovation Summit @ The PhoCusWright Conference, from Charles' demo, I could visualize how this next generation technology could help hotels, cruise lines, vacation rental platforms, OTAs and travel destinations."

"I look forward to helping polish an already outstanding Sphere platform," said Philip. 

After nearly 20 years of building a global brand – the premier source of travel, tourism and hospitality intelligence – Philip sold PhoCusWright in a strategic and complimentary deal to Northstar Travel Media, LLC in 2011.

In addition to Sphere, Wolf is on the Board of Advisors of: DataArt, Net Trans and ODIGEO. Wolf is on the Board of Directors of: Dashbell, Inntopia, Hopper, MakeMyTrip.com, OKTOGO.RU and QuickMobile.

Prior to PhoCusWright, he was president of CEO of Travelmation, a venture-funded software developer and travel booking engine pioneer, later sold to Rosenbluth International.  In addition to the sale of PhoCusWright and Travelmation, other transactions include the sale of TravelJigsaw (board director) to Priceline (2010); MakeMyTrip (board director) floating on NASDAQ (2010); and Sale of Newtrade (chairman) to Expedia (2002).

Philip has an MBA from Vanderbilt University and a BA, Magna Cum Laude from Duke University.
