Phillip Stodgell


Phillip 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 Junior A 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, Justin Sgro, who offered him the opportunity to join STC Direct. 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 in March 2014 and now oversees the Philadelphia office.
