Kevin Murphy, recently promoted to vice president at Gulf Building LLC in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

I was fortunate that Gulf Building gave me opportunities to prove myself and take on increased responsibilities from the very beginning.

Gulf Building LLC—a premier provider of commercial and residential construction management services in South Florida—today announced the promotion of Kevin Murphy to vice president. In his new position, Murphy is directly involved in all aspects of the company, responsible for overseeing the facilitation of business development, owner and subcontractor negotiations, staff management and training, and other various internal operations.

“Kevin brings impressive, wide-ranging leadership and operational experience in both the commercial and residential sides of the construction industry. He has been with our company for ten years, and in that time, he has demonstrated tremendous growth, integrity and unparalleled work ethic,” said John Scherer, president and CEO, Gulf Building LLC. “We are thrilled to have him as part of our executive team and look forward to his continued success and contributions to Gulf Building in his newly expanded role.”

A ten-year company veteran, Murphy joined Gulf Building in 2004 as a project manager. Hired and mentored by Scherer, the East Carolina University graduate quickly learned the ropes, and has since earned an enviable reputation in the field of commercial, industrial and high-end residential construction.

Having grown up around a family-owned and operated construction business, Murphy learned the value of hard work, honesty, safety and integrity at a young age. He brings those same values and work ethic to Gulf Building, effectively applying his longtime industry experience to the company’s myriad of successful construction projects.

As project manager for Gulf Building and its joint ventures, Murphy successfully created partnerships with some of the company’s biggest-name clients, including the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), the Department of Veteran Affairs, the Seminole Tribe of Florida, various local municipalities, and a host of trusted, well-known design teams and subcontractors.

“I was fortunate that Gulf Building gave me opportunities to prove myself and take on increased responsibilities from the very beginning,” said Murphy. “Their positive expectations let me reach beyond my required role in the company and become more confident with each successful challenge. As vice president, I look forward to continuing to represent Gulf Building, every day, in a positive way to create and expand new partnerships.”
