Peter Phillips joins Exacta Systems
Boynton Beach, Florida-based Exacta Systems, which sells historic horse race software and machines, announced Wednesday it has hired Peter Phillips as director of customer and regulatory relations for Virginia.
A disabled veteran with 25 years of service as a naval special warfare officer, Phillips most recently served as a deputy commandant for the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets. In his new role, he will provide services to Virginia Exacta customers and serve as a liaison to the Virginia Horse Racing Commission and the Virginia Equine Association. Exacta Systems provides gaming services to Colonial Downs and Rosie’s Gaming Emporium in New Kent.
Philips holds a degree in history from Virginia Tech and also attended the National War College. Other positions he’s held include serving as a director for the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) National Capital Region and as chief operating officer of Frontier Services Group, a security, aviation and logistics company founded and led by Erik Price, the former CEO of the private military company Blackwater.
“We are excited to bring an individual with such extensive leadership abilities and dedication to service of country and the commonwealth of Virginia,” Exacta Systems President Jeremy Stein said in a statement. “It is our great pleasure to be involved in historic horse racing in Virginia, and we look forward to helping continue the dramatic revitalization of Virginia’s racing and breeding industries.”
Founded in 2013, Exacta has also opened and staffed a Henrico office and will continue to expand its footprint and hire more Virginia residents as the historic horse racing market grows in the commonwealth, according to a company statement.
