Isabella Phoenix’s affinity for people and teams is the foundation of her talent for nurturing organizations in the corporate, art and NGO worlds.
For the past 30 years Isabella has led global multi-functional teams in HP, Nestlé and Exxon. She led the Middle East & Africa retail division of Hewlett-Packard (HP), worth US$800 million, to double-digit growth and successfully led the HP Omnichannel Transformation. She is now Senior Manager of HP’s innovative Global Channel capabilities and enablement organization.
Isabella is also the co-founder of Architects of Air, whose luminaria have enchanted 3 million visitors in over 44 countries. She is equally at home managing an arts festival as she is in a boardroom. She is delighted to be on the advisory boards of such organizations as WIN: Womens International Networking; Aquaverde, which supports Amazonian indigenous people; and Blue Door, a creative agency. Isabella is committed to diversity and equal opportunities for all, is an alumna of the IMD business school and is the proud mother of Zoe & Nico.
