about-usFounder & Director Philip Coombs


Phil Coombs Simply Business Australia

Philip Coombs is committed to championing Australians and their businesses.

Having worked as a “Profit Mentor” for the last five years, Philip is committed to helping business owners and leaders to realise the potential from their businesses and most importantly to increase profitability.

After an impressive 25 years at the helm of A.G. Coombs, Philip sold his business in late 2012, with a turnover in excess of $200M and a reputation as being one of, if not the best, in the business and it was at this point he decided to share what he had learnt and started Simply Business Australia.

Philip has a direct personal delivery style that has been described as “unique with an exceptional ability to get the message across and deliver results.”

Philip also published his first business book 'Profit is NOT a dirty word' in 2016 which unlocks the secrets behind successful businesses.

On a personal level, Philip and his family are very passionate sailors.

“We love to sail socially as well as compete which in the past has included some amazing adventures both in Australia and overseas.

When I'm not on the water I enjoy a hit of golf and I also love to travel.

I'm very passionate, or those that know me well would say, obsessed about learning and self-improvement which is why I Iove what I do at Simply Business- helping others improve their businesses so they too can experience success and financial freedom.

I'm also very passionate about helping those less fortunate. My family and I regularly host fundraising events and over the past 10 years we have raised in excess of $200K to improve the lives of underprivileged children.”

Running construction projects can be extremely difficult. On top of that there is the difficulty of running a business with all its complexities. The understanding, experience and knowledge that Simply Business has in the building and construction industry, gives me the advice to make it simple so that I can get on with what I do best.
