the industry can't have a star analyst like you sit around too long! Best of luck on future gigs and keep focused on the current one at hand. That one costs the most but pays the biggest dividends.

Firstly, thanks for these really nice sentiments. Completely unwarranted, but appreciated.

Secondly, I am not going to fall off a cliff... I will still be here churning out the occasional piece. Just because my day-job will be different doesn't mean I won't be blogging and annoying people.

Thirdly: thanks for all of those well wishes that were sent to me over email. Means a lot :)

Peace out,


Ahh, Phil...we are REALLY going to miss you. Best of luck in your new endeavor.

So are you going to keep us in suspense, or actually tell us what you'll be doing?


I think these sentiments expressed here underline how important you are to the sourcing industry. Please come back soon :)


Miss you already, little buddy. Onward and upward, indeed! See you at Secret Sourcing World Headquarters soon.

Hey Phil,
Best of luck in your next move. Looking forward to hearing back from you, soon.

You've single-handedly brought the power of blogging and social media to the sourcing industry. Am sure whatever you decide to do next in your career, you will continue to grow your influence and following,



Thanks for all your great insights over the years... like many of the sentiments here, we all hope you continue to dazzle us with your style and intelligence.

The outsourcing industry needs you -:)


Phil - you are a credit to your profession. Thanks for the great insights and long may they continue,



All the best for the future. This blog has become a cornerstone in the industry, and I sincerely hope you continue the great work, wherever you land,


So the analyst industry loses Stephanie Moore, Ray Wang and now you? Simply put, you were the best analyst in the sourcing space by a long way... whomever gets you is one lucky firm,


All the best in all future endeavors.

It's just a matter of time, Phil! We'll hear from you again in short order ... I am confident. Best wishes.

The "Phil Fersht" brand lives on regardless. I know I reflect the views of many that you are a real CREDIT to our industry,


Best wishes with whatever you do next Phil... just keep the posts coming -:)


Phil -

The very best of luck wherever you are headed.
