Kevin K. Murphy

Power 100 list

Kevin K. Murphy

President

Berks County Community Foundation

Murphy has spent 27 years striving to improve the quality of life for Berks County residents.

“The thing I’m proudest of is building and leading the best team in any community foundation in the U.S.,” he said. “The people who make this foundation tick are bright, dedicated, creative and very mission-focused.”

Bob Cardy, the late CEO of Carpenter Technology Corp., once told him, “Murphy, you should hire people who are smarter than you and let them do their job. And hiring people who are smarter than you will be easier than you think.”

“He was right,” Murphy said.

In his spare time, Murphy tools around in his 1940 Plymouth Woody Station Wagon. He is an avid college football fan, the kind that will watch a replay of a 1986 Penn State game.
