Director of Campus Services

Phil Atwell

Phil grew up in Guernsey before moving to Sussex University to study Music. Phil’s keen interest in playing the violin soon moved to playing sport, and at the end of his undergraduate degree he was elected to the position of Athletic Union president, which sparked his interest in a career in sports management. 

An MSc in Sports Management soon followed and, after a circuitous route through Civil Service graduate training and management training in Rank Org., he secured a sports management role at Kingston University.

Three years at the University of Reading followed, and then in 1999 Phil became the first Director of Sport at the University of Exeter.

Since then, Phil has fulfilled a number of roles in addition to sport, including Director of Strategy and Communication for Hospitality Services, Chairman of the Northcott Theatre, and Deputy Director of Campus Services
