Scott Phegley

Marketing Manager

Scott Phegley

Scott started with ServiceMaster of Central Illinois in October 2013 and was forced to “learn on the job” after an F4 tornado ripped through Central Illinois in November 2013. Scott was the lead on many projects where SMCI was a large component of survivors rebuilding their lives. He has a background with insurance sales and is on the River Cup Foundation Board of Directors where he helps promote the game of golf through many different youth programs. When he is not running SMCI Marketing and Social Media, you can probably find him on the golf course where he is an Illinois state ranked amateur golfer.
