Phillip Wood

Phillip, a Client Executive, joined Sentinel in 2020 after a long and successful career in collegiate athletics. Phillip is a skilled fundraiser and business developer with deep roots throughout the Southeast, where his partnerships with business and industry executives work to elevate risk management and insurance solutions for the region’s thought and innovation leaders.

Prior to joining Sentinel, Phillip raised tens of millions of dollars for NC State during his long tenure as the Associate Executive Director of the Wolfpack Club. He was also the Executive Director of the Pirate Club at East Carolina University. Trust and respect are two words that come up time and again in relation to Phillip and the many successful development partnerships he’s built over the course of his career.

A Rockingham native and NC State grad, Phillip exemplifies the value that sets Sentinel apart in the Carolinas’ risk and insurance marketplace; that of a trusted advisor and true partner. His philosophy: Anyone can sell you insurance, but who do you trust to navigate your risks and leverage opportunity on your behalf? Phillip inspires a kind of collaboration that cannot be bought and is not easily found.
