Murphy Associates celebrates 25 years as leading SE Wisconsin public relations and marketing strategy firm

Brookfield, Wis. – September 14, 2016 – Murphy Associates is celebrating its 25th year in business this month. Located in Brookfield, Wis., the firm began in 1991 as a traditional, out-sourced marketing firm for smaller businesses who didn’t have their own marketing department.

John Murphy, who founded the firm, is a former senior executive with Xerox, Ford Motor Company, Lincoln, and Rexnord. Murphy is well known in the region, and has been a speaker on marketing at Marquette University, UW-Milwaukee, and WCTC, and co-authored “Murphy’s Laws of Marketing,” with his wife, Judi Murphy.

Murphy Associates is currently led by Judi Murphy, president & CEO, who is a public relations and marketing strategy expert. Murphy has served on community committees and non-profit boards including board chair of Greater Brookfield Chamber of Commerce, board member of Tempo Waukesha, board chair of Visit Brookfield (Brookfield Convention & Visitors Bureau), board chair of Metropolitan Speakers Council, and on small business advisory boards for WCTC and Herzing University. She is a member of Independent Business Association of Wisconsin (IBAW) and a 25-year member of the Greater Brookfield Chamber of Commerce.

“We are pleased that Judi continues to bring her expertise in marketing strategy and public relations to Murphy Associates. Her tailored approach, effectiveness, excellent strategic vision, and personal care have brought her high praise from her clients,” said John Murphy, chairman.

Judi Murphy said, “For any size company, people can’t buy what they don’t know exists — our job is to tell the world you’re here. This is particularly true for smaller companies.”

Judi Murphy’s interest in marketing strategy has led her to be a member of the City of Brookfield’s marketing sub-committee of the economic development committee as well as a member of the City’s 2020 Master Plan committee. She is a guest speaker on business ethics at Carroll University and WCTC. She is also co-author of “Murphy’s Law of Marketing.”
