Management Board Members


Philip Bargiel, MSc, cPMA, CSM

A lot of communication and the right feeling for finding solutions in tricky situations, making mistakes and continuously learning new things are part of the everyday life of a young project manager", means Philip. He sees the pma young crew as the right community to be prepared as a young project manager. Philip has been an active member of the pma young crew since 2016 and part of the young crew Management Board since 2018.
