DAM Industry Week 2023

For all professionals in Media & Entertainment, CPG & Retail and Healthcare



Bernie Phillips

DAM Manager/Taxonomist


Bernie joined Aetna as the Enterprise Taxonomist during the early stages of the company’s DAM implementation and quickly assumed the role of Digital Asset Manager by developing and managing complex libraries, product taxonomies, and multi-faceted classifications while working successfully with cross-functional teams to translate business needs into actionable solutions.

Bernie began his career in professional photography, producing and taking photos for retail company catalogs. The transition from film to digital photography kickstarted his interest in properly storing and managing large libraries of digital files. Eventually, this evolved into a career in Digital Asset Management with a continuous desire to learn and improve. Bernie was a member of the first cohort to complete the Digital Asset Management Certificate Program at Rutgers University in 2020.


An Online Event

What others say

Henry Stewart events are integral to the learning process as I finish my Master's in Library and Information Science. The added bonus of remote access allows those of us who cannot attend in person to take advantage of the industry world leaders HS events always bring. Thank you!

I always learn so much at HS DAM events! Just like DAM is a process not a project, so is keeping current with the trends, updates, and vendors. HS makes me feel like I am plugged in.

HS DAM events provide the opportunity to learn what works and doesn't, what I should be focusing on in the future, and introduce areas I may have not thought to consider in how we're currently using our DAM and where we should be going.
