Who We Are
Meet the Founder
Founder and Lead Consultant Phillip Stoller is passionate about self-discovery, effective leadership, and company culture. Accendo’s mission to IGNITE Your Potential resonates deeply with Phillip, because he believes deeply in the innate abilities of the men and women who go to work each day to build a stronger community.
Phillip earned an Associate’s and Bachelor’s degrees in Psychology from Purdue University, and a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Indiana University. He has also earned a certificate in Organizational Leadership taught by the faculty of Northwestern University.
However, the “School of Hard Knocks” has also been an influential part of his journey and his experience as a young entrepreneur is at the forefront of these experiences. After graduating from college, Phillip founded Perma-Column, Inc. a company that developed, patented, and commercialized an innovative foundation system for the Post-Frame Industry. After successfully growing his company into a firm with locations throughout the United States and Canada, Phillip sold Perma-Column in 2014.
After the sale, Phillip founded Accendo Consulting and has provided consultation to international and domestic companies in the Food Processing Industry, Agri-Science Industry, and the Heavy Equipment Manufacturing Sector. His firm was contracted by Haldrup GmbH, a German manufacturer of heavy field research equipment. He led the startup team which built their North American operations and started Haldrup USA, Corp.
In addition to his work in manufacturing, Phillip has consulted for private equity firms. His work in this field involves mergers and acquisitions, business development, and portfolio optimization. Phillip also provides Business Advising and Executive Coaching to the executives and owners of privately held companies through a partnership with Aileron (www.aileron.org).
Phillip has always taken an active volunteer role in his community. He has served on the Chamber Board of Directors, held a seat on the County Council and State Committee, served as a Governor’s appointee on the Indiana Medicaid Advisory Board, and (most importantly) serves as a Coach for his children's Upward Soccer Teams.

Company Culture has been a topic for years, but it really seems to be in the spotlight today. As a business coach, one of the biggest pain points I hear from companies I work with is, “I can’t get enough talent!” This seems to be a growing trend in the labor market, compounded by strong growth in job […]
Two foundational Beliefs In my last post, I made the case for how our beliefs shape our emotions, and then how our emotions influence our actions. Given this relationship, a leaders beliefs are foundational to his or her ability to act as a leader acts. In my practice as an entrepreneur, public servant, and leadership […]
