About Us

Richard Murphy & Associates is a management consulting company serving the needs of research universities and institutes, hospitals, governments, and non-profit organizations that carry out or support medical research and clinical care.

The company engages a network of experienced professionals with long histories of achievement in the not-for profit world. Working alone or on teams, these experts assess organizations in need of objective professional advice and provide confidential recommendations to their professional and trustee leadership.

Areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, organizational assessment and restructuring; program assessment, design and implementation; building and benefitting from boards of trustees that are effective, informed, and engaged; financial management; change and crisis management; policy development; compensation and benefits; and fundraising and endowment building. 

What distinguishes us?

Professionalism: Our teams are not composed of junior consultants, but rather of experienced professionals with long histories in leading academic, research, and philanthropic organizations. These experts understand the subtleties of running complex not-for-profit organizations, and their seasoned approach is reflected in the depth and high quality of the confidential reports, written and oral, that we provide to the organizations we serve.

Cost efficiency: We are privately owned and enlist the participation of experts who are generally employed in permanent positions elsewhere. Therefore, our overhead costs are significantly lower than those of larger national and international competitors, and this translates into lower costs for clients.

Custom teams: For each project, we custom-build teams of professionals, each of whom possesses the expertise specific to solving the problems clients bring to us. In other words, we build our teams around the needs of our clients, not the needs of our company.

Long-term relationships: Not uncommonly, members of our teams have been asked by our clients to remain as advisors to their organizations, which is the best evidence of the quality and effectiveness of our advice.
