Owen Murphy

Owen Murphy is a seasoned marketing professional with experience working in a variety of settings including public relations and marketing agencies, corporations, and non-profits.  Owen currently serves as a board member and Communications Committee Chairperson for Franklin’s Paine Skatepark Fund. In this role, Owen is responsible for media outreach and telling the general public exactly what FPSF does everyday to make skateboarding in Philly even better.

Passionate about volunteering, Owen has worked with a variety of charities in addition to Franklin’s Paine Skatepark Fund, most recently serving as a member of the Development and Marketing Committees for the Philadelphia Senior Center.

According to Owen, “If you understand today’s youth –what motivates them, what their needs are, how they communicate, and you also embrace the older generations and appreciate where they’ve been and what they’ve accomplished, you’ll find you possess a balanced perspective on life.”

Owen grew up skateboarding and has experienced first-hand the frustrations of too few places to skateboard. While he may not be at the top of his skating game these days, he still enjoys the occasional visit to several skateparks in the region and also likes to snowboard, wakeboard, play golf, and ride his ATV.

Owen, his wife, and their young son live in the Italian Market area of Center City, Philadelphia.
