As a storyteller and creator at heart, Cory Phillips’ abilities and opportunities to apply his passions as a community representative for The Roberts Center and for Crumley Roberts are valued by him as truly rare and rewarding junctures. As the leader in working to keep Crumley Roberts and The Roberts Center dedicated to creating a healthier, happier, and safer future by making their communities better places to live, to work, and to play, Cory truly values the people and the organizations within each community the firm serves. He strives to partner with local groups as all share their commitment to making a positive impact in this world.
A “mountain-man at heart,” he holds a degree in Design from Brevard College and has worked in the design, hospitality, and nonprofit sectors. Cory, his wife Shelby, and their two children, Emily and Chance, have now called Greensboro home since moving here from Wyoming in 2008. His love for storytelling and creating has led to his enjoyment of teaching improvisational comedy, relaxing through the building of furniture, and valuing the importance of fitness. As a result, he additionally serves as the chief of F3 Greensboro, a national peer-led organization focusing on community leadership; as a member of the Leadership Team for Kiser Middle School; and as the chair of the Triad Community Council for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. For his leadership in the F3 Greensboro Push-ups for Playgrounds, Cory received The Roberts Center’s Ethan J. Parlier “No One Stands Alone” Award for 2019.
