Mike Murphy

BAM MARKETING GROUP

Mike Murphy was on his way to a microbiology degree when he landed an internship at a legendary record label and fell in love with marketing. Six months later, he tossed the lab coat aside and changed his major. But some things never die.

While his heart belongs to marketing, as a latent science nerd, Mike’s mind is obsessed with producing measurable results. As digital marketing evolved and analytics have come to the forefront, this unique dichotomy has allowed him to identify opportunities hidden to others inside the data. While many strategists speak about innovative plans, Mike’s track record demonstrates that he can lead teams to execute them. From the time he piloted an unknown band to sell over 500,000 albums on a shoestring budget to last year launching 674 animal hospital websites generating an 11% YoY lift in new clients, every step of the way he has produced results and optimized them.

Mike’s traditional marketing background allows him to forge digital strategy through the lens of omnichannel marketing. He’s a trusted adviser and go-to-guy for all things marketing who also has vast experience working with the C-suite communicating plans and securing consensus.
