Philip E. Cable
Board Vice President
Philip is the President of John A. Cable Foundation and the retired President of American Science & Surplus, a multichannel retailer. Philip sits or has sat on the boards of the Chicago Council on Science & Technology, 137 Films, and Redmoon Theater, as well as served the Adler Planetarium on their Collections Committee, Steering Committee of the Friends of the Webster Institute, Executive Committee of the Shepard Society, and the Adler Council. He supports science literacy and the arts and resides in Evanston, IL.
Years ago, Philip began dating a woman who maintained a TimeLine subscription. She introduced him to the theater and she is now his wife! Impressed by TimeLine’s art and the high level of managerial and financial acumen, Philip joined the TimeLine Board in 2015.
Perhaps it is just my English Lit background, but I very much enjoy storytelling as a way of learning more about history and a specific time and place.
Philip has BA degree in English Literature from Kenyon College and an MBA degree from DePaul University Kellstadt Graduate School of Business.
He is married to Jenny Siegenthaler and has two children, Grace and Anna. They all enjoy hiking in the woods with their dog, Hubert.
