Michael Murphy, President and CEO
Leadership, performance and collaboration have been the themes of Michael Murphy's 20 year telecom career. Murphy brings over 14 years of sales and management experience to NEF, with 12 years working directly with dark fiber, high capacity optical networks and data centers. He has extensive first-hand experience with network planning and implementation as well as forming and cultivating strategic alliances and channel partners throughout the nation.
Murphy has negotiated contracts and facilitated deals with nearly all the major national carriers and has successfully developed regional assets to round out NEF's service offerings. He brings his experience working with numerous Fortune 1000 companies as well as small outfits to offer diverse and inventive strategies for any size business. He leads NEF with an emphasis on personalized service for each client and a solutions-based approach to network planning.
Quickly realizing the need for detailed fiber maps for both metro and long haul networks, Murphy launched FiberLocator, which has become one of the most comprehensive mapping resources for identifying dark fiber and lit services. Additionally, BuildingLocator was developed to catalog lit buildings across the US, and now provides information on over 215,000 lit buildings.
Because high capacity networks often touch data centers, Murphy has recently spearheaded the creation of an online resource helps users find both data center space and connectivity, FindADataCenter.com. With information and a long list of providers offering data center solutions and managed services, FindADataCenter.com is rapidly growing as the go-to site for identifying and selecting a data center and network solution.
