Phillip Adams ’98 Anthropology

WBB Phil

First Vice President, SunTrust Mortgage

Upon graduating with a B.Sc. in Anthropology from Longwood College in 1998, I attended the Institute of Archaeology at University College London, where I received my M.A. in Archaeology in 2000.  I worked at various CRM firms in Virginia between 2001 and 2004, before leaving the archaeology field.  I have been employed at SunTrust Mortgage in Richmond, Virginia since 2006, where I am currently a Strategic Project Manager.  My main role has been working on projects aimed at improving the Client Experience for current customers and for new customers going through the mortgage loan process.  I credit my anthropology classes and archaeology experience for my success, as they have made me observant and detail oriented, as well as trained me to always look at the bigger picture…not just what is in front of you.  All of these have proven to be invaluable skills in my day to day work.  I couldn’t have asked for better professors than Brian Bates and Jim Jordan.
