Despite facing numerous physical challenges early in life, S. Davis (Dave) Phillips turned those obstacles into opportunities, and he approaches each day with courage and determination. This attitude, along with his business acumen and his concern for others, has led him to many faraway places and allowed him to work with national and international leaders as a former United Statesambassador to Estonia, past secretary of commerce for his home state of North Carolina and chairman of the 1999 Special Olympics World Games. He is the recipient of numerous awards, but his most treasured one is the Choate Seal, which was first given to John F. Kennedy. Phillips’ strategic investments helped shape the International Furniture Market, which brings 80,000 visitors to High Point, North Carolina twice a year. He has sold three of his companies to companies on the New York Stock Exchange. Today, he lives in North Carolina, where he continues to be an influencer, an admired leader, and a successful businessman.
