Philip Witman is a Director of Global Regulatory Affairs at GlaxoSmithKline, with a specialization in oncology and biopharmaceutical products. His career in the pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical industry includes more than 29 years of clinical and regulatory experience in managing investigational and marketed products. In the past five years, he has led the regulatory activities that resulted in the approval of two new treatments for cancer in the US.

Besides the Hebrew Free Loan Society of Greater Philadelphia, he is an active fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and Livestrong. He and his wife are proud members of Congregation Adath Jeshurun in Elkins Park.

While a college and graduate student, the Hebrew Free Loan Society in Northern New Jersey provided Philip with interest-free loans that helped pay for his tuition. He was extremely fortunate that this program existed and became a donor once the repayments had been completed. When he learned of the Hebrew Free Loan Society of Greater Philadelphia, it was easy for him to volunteer to help provide other interest-free loans to those who could benefit from the assistance. As part of the HFLS, he has served as secretary and assisted with the issuance of loans.
