Jeff Murphy Elected as Chair of Literacy Alliance

The PEI Literacy Alliance is pleased to announce that its past Treasurer, Jeff Murphy, has been elected as Chair of the Board of Directors. Murphy brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to the Alliance’s Board. Murphy is a corporate strategist with 15 years of expertise in finance, sales and marketing. "The Literacy Alliance has provided enormous value to Islanders for over 20 years. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve such an important organization” says Murphy.

"Having worked extensively in developing countries I have seen first-hand the impact that education, specifically literacy skills, has on standard of living,” says Jeff, who has advised Governments in over 15 developing countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East on how to attract private sector investment to develop transportation infrastructure.

Since returning to PEI Jeff has focused on acquisitions and marketing to grow his family’s business, Murphy Healthcare, and served as Executive Director of Murphy’s Community Centre between 2013 and 2016.

Jeff has a Chartered Financial Analyst Designation and was awarded the ICD.D designation by the Institute of Corporate Directors in 2016. He has sat on numerous corporate and not for profit boards.

Past Chair, Ron MacDonald, says, "Jeff played a critical role as Treasurer of the Board in having The Alliance secure two years of core-funding from the Provincial Government. I'm confident he will steer the organization in the right direction.”

Executive Director Jinny Greaves says she is excited to work with Jeff Murphy. "I think the staff and board have a lot to learn from Jeff and that his leadership will help strengthen our organization and therefor our capacity to deliver quality literacy programs to those who need them most.”
