Through the 80's, Phil McKinney spent his time gaining experience by working with leading companies in Silicon Valley. The result was his first of many award winning technologies and products being brought to market. 

In 1996, he founded Techtrend Group to work with leading brands to create technolgies and products that would have a meaningful impact. 

To help others build their confidence to innovate, he has launched subsideraries of Techtrend, such as The Innovators Network, that share and train others on how Techtrend does what it does. 

Phil has sat on public, private and advisory boards, and in rare cases has joined client companies, such as HP, to lead their innovation efforts from the inside. 

After a decade with HP, Phil retired as HP CTO at the end of 2011. That retirement was short lived as in mid-2012, he took over the role of President and CEO of CableLabs. the "Bell Labs of the cable industry" 

Phil is still active with Techtrend as the Founder and Executive Chairman. 

100% of any compensation that Phil personally receives from Techtrend is donated to charities such as HackingAutism.org.
