The Berkeley College Foundation Inc. (BCF) has appointed John Phillips, CEO & Co-Founder, UltraMend, Inc., as Chair of the Board. Phillips replaces Donna Boles, a Berkeley College alumna and former Senior Vice President, Human Resources at Becton, Dickinson and Company, who served on the Berkeley College Foundation board for five years. While he has large shoes to fill, Phillips is more than up for the challenge as this is his second term in the BCF chair role, having served in this capacity from 2017 through 2021.

Mr. Phillips co-founded medical device company UltraMend, Inc., in 2013, and has over 20 years of experience in the healthcare startup industry. He also has served on the Board of Directors of the Molly Center for Children with Diabetes and Endocrine Disorders at Hackensack University Medical Center in Hackensack, NJ. “I am delighted and honored to be serving the Berkeley College Foundation as Board Chair,” Phillips said.  “I look forward to creating and building upon its initiatives and successes.”
