Introduction

Murphy Business is one of the largest and most successful business transaction firms in North America. We provide clients and business associates with the highest standards of professional service and unmatched performance in the purchase or sale of privately held businesses, business valuations, mergers and acquisitions, franchise sales, machinery and equipment appraisals, commercial real estate, and business consulting. With the team at Murphy Business, you can be assured you are represented by outstanding, experienced and knowledgeable professionals who will provide you with sound financial, strategic and tactical implementation to achieve a successful transaction.

I founded Murphy Business and Financial’s first office in southeast Michigan. With more than 25 years’ experience in management of both private and public companies, I spent the first couple of decades of my professional life as a software engineer, progressing to project leadership and engineering management positions. I completed this phase of my career as a program manager at Intel Corporation, where I effectively negotiated internal and external engagements.

During my tenure at Intel, I began developing an algorithm for mutual fund investing in my spare time. Eventually I founded an investment advisory firm based on this algorithmic investing program, left Intel to operate the firm, and eight years later merged it with a much larger firm. I love working with numbers, especially as part of a decision-making process. At the same time, I enjoy, value and appreciate the less quantifiable components that comprise most aspects of business.

I hold an MBA from Michigan State University, graduating with honors. I also earned the prestigious Certified Merger & Acquisition Advisor credential from the Alliance of Merger & Acquisition Advisors, and am active in the Michigan Business Brokers Association.

Having personally experienced both the sale and purchase of businesses, I understand the risks and opportunities for both sides of the transaction. As a result, I promise to provide comprehensive advice to clients, whether buying or selling. My goal is to be the trusted advisor in the transaction, working cooperatively with all involved parties, to make this unique, complex, life-changing process one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences of my clients’ business career.
