On October 5th, 2018, Burns White attorney, Phillip T. Glyptis, became the 75th inductee into West Virginia University (WVU) Academy of Industrial Engineers. The Academy is the “hall of fame” for WVU’s Industrial and Management Systems Engineering Department, and recognizes outstanding graduates of the department who have 15 years of experience, bring honor to both the profession and the department, and dedicatedly serve the community and WVU.
Mr. Glyptis, who graduated from WVU in 2000 with his Bachelor of Science degree in industrial engineering and in 2003 with his Juris Doctor degree, has served as an advisor to the Industrial and Management Systems Engineering Department since 2005, and from 2015 to 2017, served as the chair of its Advisory Committee. Through these roles, Mr. Glyptis interacts and mentors students, and provides professional insights to ensure that the program adheres to its mission, objectives, and educational outcomes.
“Being a West Virginia native and an engineer who practices law, I was truly humbled by the thought that my picture will be permanently placed on the wall of WVU’s engineering school with all the great members of the academy both past and present,” Glyptis remarked. “I also want to thank Burns White for allowing me to continue to grow personally and professionally, and affording me time to also give back to the community, the department, and WVU.”
Mr. Glyptis is joined by Brad Parrish, Vice President of FedEx Supply Chain, who provided his introduction at the ceremony.
