Mike Murphy, Operations Management
Mike has been with us since 1998. Initially full times in sales he grew into the IT end of the business. In Mike’s own words: “I am an extreme introvert which is a large reason why I enjoy my main job duties of data base and operation systems managements. I have always been good with numbers and am fascinated by computer technology so combining the two certainly fits my comfort zone. Ellis Redding in the Shawshank redemption would obviously say the job appeals to my meticulous nature.” His time away from work is usually spent tinkering in his garage with some woodworking or in his man cave with a few casual hobbies such as tuning in to a good NHL game especially if the SJ Sharks or LA Kings are playing. His greatest satisfaction in life is his three loving daughters, all very responsible hard working UC graduates. He is fortunate that they are all close to home where he can still spend time with them. email@example.com
