CMA said Murphy, who is based in Florida, will focus on further developing the sales teams and strategies in North America as well as supporting corporate objectives in order to support the growth. He will be based in Florida.
"Returning to a company you help lead for many years is a special honor and experience," Murphy said. "Double Coin has taken great strides in the market in recent years, and I'm excited to assist in continuing the forward momentum."
