Medical Properties Trust, Inc. announced on Thursday that former GSA Administrator Emily Murphy, Senior Fellow with the Center for Government Contracting at George Mason University Business School, who serves as a partner of CEO Coaching International and is a key member of Executive Mosaic’s GovCon Expert program, has joined the company’s board of directors.
Murphy, a three-time Wash100 Award recipient, was appointed as an independent member of MPT’s Board of Directors based on the unanimous recommendation from MPT’s Ethics, Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. Murphy will be nominated for re-election at the company’s annual meeting in May.
“We are pleased to add Emily’s superb understanding of transactional law and her deep experience managing the growth of large organizations to our board,” said Edward Aldag, Jr., MPT’s chairman, president and CEO.
During her tenure as the administrator for the General Services Administration (GSA) between 2017 through 2021, Murphy led a workforce of more than 11,000 federal employees and $75 billion in annual contracts.
Murphy increased GSA contract sales by over 36 percent, from $55 billion to $75 billion in three years. Revenues grew from $21.8 billion in FY 2017 to $29 billion in FY 2020, and customer agencies realized $21.6 billion in savings in three years.
In addition, GovCon Expert Emily Murphy led the agency to significantly increase its sales and reportedly saved federal agencies more than $20 billion over her four years in the role. The GSA also recorded the highest customer and employee satisfaction scores in the history of the GSA.
Most recently, Murphy joined CEO Coaching International in Sept. 2021 as its newest partner and coach. In her new role, she continues to utilize her experience in GovCon and federal agency leadership to coach growth-focused CEOs in optimizing their organizations’ performance.
“I am passionate about helping people and organizations fulfill their highest potential and achieve the greatest amount of success,” GovCon Expert Emily Murphy explained. “I’ve spent my career focused on delivering tangible results across a variety of industries, with a record of significantly increasing revenues, decreasing costs, and improving customer satisfaction.“
