    Phil Gilbert is an entrepreneur and self-proclaimed "startup guy".  At IBM, his mission is grand: to transform one of the world's most iconic companies - and the technologies it creates to power the systems of the world.  Phil was born in 1956, the same year that IBM's Thomas Watson, Jr. hired the company's first head of Design, Elliot Noyes.
