Employee Spotlight: Fil Anastasio, Director of Client Analytics

Creative, Dedicated, Passionate, Helpful, Geeky and Kind.

Director of Client Analytics at SHP, Fil Anastasio comes to work every day with one goal in mind: make a difference.

Fil is a jack of all trades. In his current position, he leads SHP’s campaign assistance services, engages communities in master plan development, and brings new tools and skill sets into the firm. But what excites him most is seeing the positive impact he has on so many people’s lives.

“I love helping people and my job allows me to take that to a whole new level,” Fil said. “Seeing the new school buildings in communities that haven’t had new facilities in over 70 years and knowing the change that will come from that for generations—that’s what gets me out of bed every morning. Making the world a little better place one community at a time.”

“I hope when I look back I can say I've made a difference. That I helped change lives, communities, and futures.”

Fil has been with SHP for 25 years and has had one of the most accomplished careers the firm has seen. The former Xavier MBA grad has not only designed unique brands for Cooper Creek, Franklin City Schools, Deer Park Schools and many more but he has also been the leading developer of a myriad of iPhone apps and numerous other applications. He helped SHP become the first architecture firm in the country to have an iPhone app which received a 2013 CDA design award winner.

Perhaps most notably, Fil led the development of TargetVote®, the voter analytics tool that drives our firm’s campaign assistance service. Fil has shared his expertise on numerous occasions including speaking nationally at EDspaces in 2019 with Sycamore Community Schools. He has also presented at multiple educational conferences in Ohio hosted by OSBA and BASA.

“Fil leads by example,” said SHP president Lauren Della Bella. “He’s a huge proponent of bringing people up through positive encouragement. Though his accomplishments are impressive, I believe his leadership is his strongest skill.”

When he is not hard at work, Fil spends his time perfecting his cooking skills. He also has a constant need to be near fresh water. He loves to read about advancements in technologies and data analytics. But above all, Fil enjoys spending time with his wife, Abby, and his two children.

“My family is the most important thing in the world. My wife and two kids are my focus and passion.”
