My name is Philip Rowcliffe and I am an agency Director at Surrogate Alternatives. I’m focused on spreading the word about the amazing services SAI offers to our clients and helping build amazing families.
I was born in Cheshire, England but have lived in California for the past twenty years or so. My immediate family all lives in the USA but most of my relatives are still in the UK. I have been together with my husband for over thirty years and we have lived in San Diego the past 12 or so.
I have spent most of my professional career working for software and technology companies, beginning in operational management then transitioning to sales and account management leadership roles. I’ve worked most recently for Dick’s Sporting Goods and Active Network delivering software products and services to various amateur sports organizations. Prior to that I worked as a Vice President of Operations for Match.com in Sydney, Australia and helped launch the Citysearch.com websites in the US and globally.
While I don’t have any individual experience with surrogacy, my husband and I do know many couples who have used surrogacy to build their families. We also see surrogacy becoming increasingly popular for younger gay couples. In my career, I’ve always been drawn to assisting customers solve any problems or challenges they have that my company can help them with. Most of my career that involved utilizing software to meet those challenges. Now, I’m focusing on helping my customers achieve their goals to build families – and SAI is such a great place to do that!
The things I love about my job:
- I get paid to help people build a family!
- I love to travel and meet new people
- I enjoy working with people who are so committed and passionate about what they do
We have two cats named Whiskey and Sambuca. I am an avid gardener; I recently planted and now maintain my own mini-orchard in our backyard. I grew up performing in musical theater. I play guitar and piano and love to sing. I am a big foodie. I also love to cook and try new meals out on my husband and our friends.
