Chief Operating Officer



Kevin Woody

Chief Operating Officer

I’m thrilled to bring my passion and 25 years of experience to Chappell’s leadership team as Chief Operating Officer. From the beginning of my career, I’ve been inspired by the opportunity to influence the lives of others around me. I’ve served in several positions, from broker management to multiple C-suite roles, and while acting in each, I kept the mentality of “reach high and grow deep” at my core.

As COO of Chappell, I oversee our daily operations and optimize workflows to ensure our team runs effectively and efficiently. If my years of experience have taught me anything – it’s that all this growth starts at home. I have a passion for elevating the skills + confidence of my collaborators because I recognize personal growth drives progress for an entire organization. I’m floored by creative innovation, and I pride myself on my ability to empower those around me to pursue their best. 

When I’m not in the office, you’ll find me enjoying my wife’s care and cooking, reading far too many books at one time, spending time with family along the coast, or enjoying my favorite place in the Triangle: Hwy 751 from Apex to Durham.
