Chris Murphy

As one of ThoughtWorks' four co-Presidents (together with Guo Xiao, Sudhir Tiwari and Craig Gorsline), Chris has the great privilege and responsibility of co-leading ThoughtWorks' global business.   
Chris is a lawyer by profession, a technologist by passion (his coding skills are rusty, but he still likes to pretend he's up-to-date), a marketeer by reputation, and a winter sports enthusiast by accident.  His current areas of focus are global strategy, brand, marketing, digital and communications.

The Interview

With ThoughtWorks, I’ve visited

The thing I love most about my work is

The people that I get to work and interact with.  Our clients represent many of the world's most interesting and impactful organisations, governments and movements; bound by a common desire to use technology to empower their ambitious missions.  Our people - ThoughtWorkers - comprise some of the most diverse, energetic, eclectic and passionate global technologists, designers, business people, entrepreneurs and humanists that you will ever meet.
