“I very much enjoy serving on the Plymouth Harbor Foundation Board. My mother lived to be 105 and she left all of her money to charity. As Chair of the Trustees for her charitable trust, it is my hope that I can do as much good for her charitable interests as she did during her lifetime.” — Phil Starr, Trustee and Plymouth Harbor Resident
Phil Starr served for 35 years in the insurance industry as a broker in Kansas City, where he earned his CLU designation. He received his bachelor’s degree from Princeton and an MBA from Wharton. His long list of volunteer service includes President of the Board of a local private school, the Senior Warden of a Kansas City Episcopal Church, and the President of the Board of the Kansas City Boy Scout Council. His scouting activities are vast, having earned the Silver Beaver, Silver Antelope (for outstanding service to youth), Eagle Scout, and the God and Country award as a youth.
Phil and his wife Barry became Florida residents in 2003 and own a condo at Sands Point on Longboat Key. They have been residents of Plymouth Harbor since 2011. As his main hobby, Phil is a videographer, and has produced videos for two major Plymouth Harbor productions of late: The Stash on the Seventeenth Floor and Broadway and Beyond. He also produced a beautiful slideshow of the environs of Plymouth Harbor, which he donated to Plymouth Harbor; it now runs outside of the Marketing Department for all to enjoy.
