SSM Direct - Phillip Stodgell HeadshotPhillip Stodgell grew up in the small town of Warroad, Minnesota on the Canadian border. He graduated from Northland Community and Technical College in Thief River Falls, Minnesota with an Associate of Science degree in Criminal Justice.

Having grown up in Warroad, the original Hockeytown USA, hockey had a huge place in his heart. After playing through college and semi-pro¬†hockey, then becoming a referee for the game, Phillip wanted more. He moved from Minnesota to Denver, Colorado for family and came across an old hockey friend, who offered him the opportunity to join a marketing firm at the time. With Phillip’s natural competitive nature, he quickly grew and found success inside the business.

Phillip is a big sports fan; hockey, football, golf and baseball being a few of his favorites. He enjoys outdoor activities, especially hiking and skiing. Phillip is also looking forward to experiencing some new adventures here, such as white water rafting, kayaking and sky diving!

Phillip was promoted to President in March 2014 and now oversees clients in our Philadelphia market.
