Congrats to UT’s Dr. John Murphy

Mar 23, 2017

We literally wouldn’t be where we are today, without The University of Texas at Austin’s Dr. John Murphy. I took his ADV 318J “Introduction to Advertising” class in the Spring semester of 1998. When Dr. Murphy gave the class a group assignment, I turned to three people in the auditorium row behind me, never imagining that one of them would become my best friend and business partner.

Dr. Murphy’s contributions to the University and the bazillions of students that have taken his courses (some, multiple times) cannot be overstated. The Austin advertising community at large owes him a tremendous debt of gratitude for the many leaders and team members he’s helped groom throughout the last 40+ years. So it’s with great pride and a soft spot in our hearts that we join our alma mater in congratulating Dr. John Murphy on his induction into the Southwest Advertising Hall of Fame.
