General Cable announced that the Wire & Cable Manufacturers’ Alliance (WCMA) has named Mike Murphy (vice-president, sales, Gepco brand products) as a recipient of one of its 2010 Distinguished Career Awards. The 26th annual awards dinner and investiture ceremony honouring Murphy took place in April.

“Mike is a legend in the industry and has been a tremendous positive
influence on General Cable in his eight years with the company,” said
Greg Lampert, president and CEO, General Cable North America. “Mike was
instrumental in leading our data communications sales force
transformation six years ago, and has been a key catalyst in our
resurgence of Carol Electronics over the last eight years.”

“With all that he has done for General Cable, perhaps Mike’s greatest
legacy will be the people that he has attracted to the company that are
current and future leaders in our sales and marketing organizations,”
continued Lampert.

Over the years, Murphy has held senior-level management positions in
wire and cable marketing, sales, engineering and manufacturing. His most
recent accomplishment is the integration of Gepco International—a
manufacturer and provider of cabling solutions for the professional
broadcast and entertainment markets—into General Cable. Murphy joined
General Cable in June 2002 as vice-president of national accounts and,
in July 2002, became vice-president of data communications sales.

Before joining General Cable, he spent five years with American
Standard’s Building Specialty group and five years with Baxter/Travenol
Medical products, both in manufacturing management positions. In 1978,
Murphy joined Belden and held positions in manufacturing, engineering
and served 10 years as vice-president of sales and marketing. Murphy
joined CommScope in 1998 as vice-president of sales and marketing for
LAN and fiber products. In 2000, he worked as a consultant for ADC for
one year.
