Whether it’s on the job or in his high-flying personal life, IC Bus strategic planner Mike Phillips is always up for a challenge.
The 50-year-old Phillips has worn many hats during his 10 years at IC Bus, from working on the line to his current position in the planning division. But IC Bus isn’t the only place where Phillips puts it all on the line: He’s also an accomplished skydiver with more than 600 jumps under his belt. The Point Break fan got hooked as soon as he took his first jump nearly 20 years ago. “I needed that kind of adrenaline,” he says. “But I’m scared of sharks and I live in Oklahoma, so I knew it had to be in the sky.”
Of course, Phillips also gets thrills on the job at IC Bus. “Finding creative ways to serve our customers without a hiccup—that’s a home run for me.”
