When Philip Strack was a child, his grandmother knew he would be an electrician some day, given his knack for repairing her Christmas tree lights. “I’ve always enjoyed learning how things work and are put together,” Phil says. That interest led him to pursue a career in the skilled trades and become a certified journeyman electrician. His later roles managing multiple disciplines and facilities exposed Phil to a variety of projects and helped him gain a thorough understanding of construction, which he now applies to his role at CORE.
Born and raised in Indiana, Phil says he’s excited to be part of a team that “improves facilities and transforms our community.” Passionate about supporting the skilled tradespeople who are creating our built environment, Phil contributes technical expertise alongside the ability to form relationships, provide training, and focus on efficiency and results.
Phil currently serves as programs committee chair for the Indianapolis chapter of the International Facilities Management Association board of directors. In addition, he’s active in his church and community, volunteering for the All Pro Dad program, the Special Olympics’ Polar Plunge, and clean-up projects in Greenwood and Indianapolis.
Phil and his family—wife, Julie; daughter, Nicole, and dog, an Aussiedoodle named Sassie Sangria—enjoy surrounding themselves with friends and family, whether it’s working on projects, boating on Patoka Lake, or serving up barbeque from Phil’s “obnoxiously large smoker.”
