Phil DeGisi leads Orchard’s marketing and product teams as co-founder and chief product and marketing officer. Under DeGisi’s leadership, Orchard has achieved a billion-dollar valuation in just four years, expanded into eleven markets throughout the U.S. — thirteen by May 2022 — and helped thousands of American families win their dream homes in a hypercompetitive market. Along the way, DeGisi has fostered an inclusive environment where team members feel supported and receive clear guidance on how to drive deep impact and advance in their careers.
As a co-founder, DeGisi helped start the business from the ground up, meeting with hundreds of homeowners to understand the pain points and challenges they face in home buying. DeGisi and his teams have taken those insights and made Orchard one of the most stress-free, fair and simple ways to buy a home. Under his leadership, Orchard has grown from a marketing team of one to a thriving department of 30 people.
