New leadership in The Space

McPhail back on campus as executive director.

Curt McPhail ’96 is back on campus as the new executive director of The Space in the Mungo Center.

The Space provides professional development, career services, real-world experience and entrepreneurial guidance to students.

McPhail, who previously served as a project manager of the Northside Development Group, received degrees in business economics and sociology from Wofford and received additional certification in community engagement from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

“Curt McPhail brings with him a wealth of experience as a leader and expertise in developing strong, diverse partnerships, building effective teams and achieving high quality outcomes in both local and global environments,” says Dr. Dennis M. Wiseman, Wofford’s provost. “He will be a terrific leader and mentor in providing Wofford students with the tools and skills for the world beyond Wofford – whether that’s in a career or in graduate school.”

McPhail also is the founding executive director of the internationally recognized organization globalbike inc. The marketing arm of the organization received the 2009 Beyond Sport Award from former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. McPhail has previously served as program director for the Mary Black Foundation from 2004 to 2013 and before that was executive director of Stop the Violence.

He received the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award from Wofford twice – as a graduating senior in 1996 and again in 2014 as an alumnus.
