We currently invited a top manager to find gainful employment elsewhere.  Is there any way to wipe the personal phone of our exchange information (i.e. contacts, etc.)?  

Also, if I cannot do it is there some software/hardware that I should put in place to manage this better in the future.  

Please help!

It's his phone? Not likely. Devices with privileged data should be company owned and issued.

For future things like use an MDM like Airwatch or Windows Intune.

Windows Intune also works great on peoples personal phones where they can receive their corporate emails, if they leave or the phone gets lost/stolen then you can remote wipe that part of their phone so no company data can be exposed.

In the predicament you're in now you could remove the Exchange Active sync device association because i think that may remove his power to receive corporate emails - here is a link which will elaborate on my comment

Ok, try the following:

Open the user account on OWA and try to find on settings, phone or mobile.  There select the device you will need to clear and select the option to Wipeout from the menu.
