WATERTOWN, Mass., May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- BlueMetal Architects today announces the appointment of twenty-five-year professional services industry veteran Frank Murphy as the Company's new Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Murphy will oversee BlueMetal's daily business operations including Delivery, Finance and Human Resources.
Mr. Murphy joins BlueMetal from Microsoft, where he spent nineteen years in roles ranging from leading large professional services practices to managing global relationships with Microsoft's most strategic clients. Prior to joining Microsoft, Mr. Murphy spent several years managing professional services practices at companies including Oracle and Verity.
"Jobs are easy to find, but careers are difficult to find," said Mr. Murphy. "We aim to be the place where the smartest, most passionate and results-oriented experts in the marketplace crave to work. We're creating an environment where employees can have fun, be motivated, innovate, and get exposure to a wide array of ideas and expertise. We want BlueMetal to be the last job they ever need to have."
His strategic goals for the coming year include operational innovations to support BlueMetal's rapid growth. In addition, Mr. Murphy plans to increase the focus on RedMetal, a sister company of BlueMetal focused on product development. "A lot of people working within companies today aren't comfortable leaving their jobs to become entrepreneurs, but they have great ideas. RedMetal provides an outlet for these innovators to launch companies. We empower our people to bring their ideas to market in an accelerated manner, taking advantage of all the skills we've employed in bringing BlueMetal to market."
Since its 2010 launch, the company has created 70 new jobs, expanded to three locations, spun off a software company, CollabFactory, and delivered successful projects to numerous companies including several on the Fortune 500 list.
"I'm pleased that BlueMetal already enjoys an outstanding reputation in the marketplace, and I hope to use my twenty-five years of experience to further establish and enhance the brand, and create velocity in the markets we're in. I look forward to working with the BlueMetal team to bring all the success we've had in Boston, Chicago, and New York to new markets over the next few years."
Mr. Murphy has a BS degree in Finance and Economics from Boston College, and earned his MBA from Rutgers University. He will be based at the company's New York office.
