About Phil Hill

Phil Hill is a non-profit executive and serial technology entrepreneur. As Executive Director of Soccer In The Streets, Phil leads an organization creating positive social impact, through soccer, for youth living in underserved urban communities. He has been working with the organization for 18 years in the capacity as a volunteer, board member, chairman or executive director.

Soccer In The Streets has been responsible for leading the award-winning initiative, StationSoccer. The project addresses the issue of transportation barriers that prevent low-income urban youth from participating in soccer. The organization currently serves 5,000 youth annually by pairing character development programs and employment readiness training with soccer. A recent initiative called Station Soccer uses transit in a unique way to connect communities across the city around soccer. The project has received multiple awards for innovation nationally and internationally.

Previously, Phil worked as a technology executive. Three of these businesses saw successful exits through acquisition. Notably, Netzip.com a file management company was acquired by RealNetworks and Vocalocity a cloud-based phone service was acquired and became Vonage Business. In his other pursuits, Phil loves to mountain bike, play soccer and spend time with his family in Atlanta, GA, and the UK.
