Prior to that he was Vice President of Northern Operations for another regional firm where he focused on education and healthcare construction work.
Murphy has been an active member of the Wausau community serving on the Board of Directors for the Boys & Girls Club and the DC Everest Youth Hockey League. He has also been a member of the Rotary Club of Wausau. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
