Who is Phil Cooper?
Phil Cooper spent most of his professional career as a second-generation owner of Cooper Pest Solutions, running alongside his brother Richard Cooper, a world-renowned entomologist. Along the way Phil experienced the bruises of a family business along with the incredible rewards, growing it from seven employees to 110, becoming the 54th largest company out of 20,000 pest control companies nationwide.
Along the way, the company won many awards to include, The NJ Family Business of the Year and Innovator of the Year. Despite the success, Phil knew his company had hit the ceiling. In 2015 he was introduced to EOS and learned how a complete system can supercharge a business. Cooper Pest went from single digit growth to 20 percent plus growth and greater earnings, leading to an acquisition by Terminix in 2018, securing his families future.
Phil now helps fellow business owners get what they want from their businesses. He does this by helping them bring clarity to their vision, getting their leaders 100% on the same page to achieve every part of their vision.
He does this through the implementation of the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS), getting organizations 100% strong in a complete system that focuses on Vision, People, Data, Issues, Processes and Traction combined with simple tools to develop the team.
While execution of the vision is fundamental, Phil also believes in a second component, the development of the talent pool to scale the business. He has taken timeless leadership lessons and created a unique process where students attend classes and apply their learnings to their everyday jobs within their current organization. The process develops current leaders and builds the bench by vetting aspiring leaders so organizations can identity and develop their future leadership pool quicker, faster, reducing mistakes.
Phil’s passion to excellence, teaching and coaching make up his implementation style. Phil’s combines his knowledge of service-based companies with his extensive network of subject matter experts as a foundation to bring EOS and the classes to life. His energy exudes to each team he works with making every session powerful, bringing Vision, Traction, Healthy to each organization he works with.
When Phil is not working, he can be found cycling. Cycling is both a passion of his as well as a platform Phil uses to help raise money for Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Runaway Children and other charitable organizations. These charitable events all stem off his bike ride across the country in 2012 when he rode from Virginia to San Francisco raising money for MS.
