Vice President of Client Services
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
Phillip came onboard with Valent Group in June 2017 as vice president for client services. He is responsible for ensuring the quality of all services we provide while leading our commerical account services team.
Phillip’s expertise has been honed by his 30 years of experience in insurance and risk management. Having worked 10 years as a service supervisor and senior account representative for Liberty Mutual, a direct insurance carrier, and then 15 years as a senior client manager of Marsh & McLennan Companies, the highest revenue insurance brokerage in the world, Phillip has spent much of his career focused on the client experience.
Mostly recently, Phillip has been devoted exclusively to corporate risk management. He spent nearly four years at the Russo Corporation as risk manager and director of safety. Prior to that, he was the senior analyst and risk manager at Walter Energy.
Originally from Albertville, Alabama, Phillip moved to Birmingham 31 years ago for work — and a girl. That girl would become his wife and the mother of their three children. Outside of work, Phillip primarily spends time with his family and occasionally enjoys bird hunting.
