Terry Murphy, Vice President

Terry MurphyA Minnesota native who moved to California in the mid-70’s, after it dawned on me, early one cold winter morning, as I was reaching into the freezer for orange juice for breakfast, that it was warmer inside the freezer than it was outside. Very proud to be related to three beautiful granddaughters: one married to a wonderful man in Minnesota; and two in school in Rhode Island (4th & 9th grades). I am an advocate of the Kaizen business philosophy: We will do better today than we did yesterday, and we will do better tomorrow than we do today.

“Good enough isn’t good enough, if it can be better. And better isn’t good enough, if it can be best.” – Rick Bigsby
