Phil Camm, Co Founder & Business Strategy Consultant

Hailing from Oldham, England, Camm began playing rugby at nine years old for Aldwinians RUFC. He continued on to play for his school, Manchester Grammar and then represented his county of Tameside.

Since Camm moved from the UK in 2003, he became heavily involved in the Dallas rugby scene. As a player and later as head coach of the Denton Rugby Club, he helped the team win promotion to Texas Division 2 and establish a women’s team.

In 2008, Camm founded the Dallas Griffins Rugby Club alongside Bill Bingham. Griffins was one of the first semi-professional teams in the US. Griffins climbed quickly to compete in USA Rugby’s first tier amateur competition, Red River Conference D1.

Camm has been a long time advocate for professionalising rugby in America and was a key member of the group that formed what would later become Major League Rugby. He has served on the Texas Rugby Union board and is also certified as a Sports Event Safety and Security Professional, combining his experience in event management with emergency incident training through his company Five Phase.
