Phillip Wood

Client Executive

Phillip Wood joined Sentinel’s risk strategy and development team in the summer of 2020, after a long and successful career in collegiate athletics. Phillip is a skilled fundraiser and business developer with deep roots from Raleigh to Greenville, where his partnerships with business and industry executives work to elevate risk management and insurance solutions for the region’s thought and innovation leaders.

He raised tens of millions for NC State during his long tenure as associate executive director of the Wolfpack Club, and held a similar role at East Carolina prior to joining Sentinel. 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.

Phillip, a Rockingham native and NC State grad, 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.
