As the owner of a small company with only 2.5 employees, I get to do everything from strategic planning to taking out the trash. Almost all my staff meetings take place at Starbucks, Hershey's Ice Cream, or a local sushi bar.

Introduction

John Murphy, owner and president of the Murphy Agency, Inc., has more than 30 years of experience in advertising, sales and marketing management. Over his career, he directed major promotional campaigns, launched citywide initiatives, and co-authored The Akron Family Album, a photographic memoir of Greater Akron from 1900 to 1970.

John has extensive media experience, having worked in newspapers, magazines, radio and as a direct-response copywriter in the direct mail industry.

After the September 11 terrorist attacks, he launched a city-wide drive to buy New York City a firetruck. The resulting fundraising drive brought in more than $1.4 million from the greater Akron area, allowing the city to purchase a 95-ft. ladder truck and two ambulances for Ladder Company 163 in Queens, New York.

John is a member of the Greater Akron Chamber, Hudson Chamber of Commerce, the Advertising Federation of Greater Akron, the American Marketing Association and the Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE). He serves as vice president of the board of directors of OPEN M, a nonprofit, faith-based ministry that operates Summit County’s largest free medical clinic for Akron’s inner city residents.

John has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Bowling Green State University and an MBA in marketing management and research from the University of Akron.
