Phil Dass, aka Philip Da, has had varied experiences which makes him quite a fit for the role he presently holds with K2. He began as a journalist and worked with the Old Lady of Boribunder -as the Times Group at DN Road, VT, (Mumbai) is fondly called by many in the city. He headed the Response Editorial and was in charge of all the group's supplements, apart from Ascent in TOI. He was instrumental in the launch of the Plus editions all over the country. He holds the record for bringing out an Independence Day special for the Bangalore edition of TOI with nearly 100 broadsheet pages. He has worked with DSJ and Solitaire, and was also with Gitanjali Gems. He was with K2 in the founding days but he moved on and even went overseas and worked with FMCG companies managing their digital presence. He is back with K2 and brings a vast amount of Indian and global experience adding to the invaluable human capital of K2.
