Phil Wuerffel

Market Director

Phil Wuerffel is the Market Director for Thrivent, a National, Fortune 500 Financial Services Company. Phil oversees the recruiting, onboarding, and launch of the new Financial Advisors across Western Washington. Prior to working the Financial Services world, Phil was a pastor for about 12 years working with churches in Texas, then Montana and then finally in Sumner, Washington.

Phil and his wife, Kelli have 3 children (ages 13, 10, and 6), so when he is not hiring and launching new advisors you are most likely to find him on the sidelines of one of the kids soccer games, building epic hot wheels tracks, or with his 13 year old daughter at the archery range working on their newest shared hobby.

Additionally, Phil is currently the Chapter Director for (the soon to be re-launching) Tacoma KIROS.

About Young Professionals

After the pandemic put the chapter on a brief hiatus, KIROS Young Professionals re-launched in May 2023.
