We are so beyond proud of our commander-in-chief Ted Murphy for making the Orlando Business Journal’s 2013 list of the “Twenty Most-Influential Businessmen in Central Florida.” In order to celebrate, we wanted to share what we love most about Ted:

“Ted’s morning ‘Woohooooo’ as he enters the office is as good as a cup of coffee to get you ready for the day.” – Kristen Parody, Account Management.

“Ted is a madman and a genius marketer and a cartoon character and completely, utterly Ted. The best part of working with Ted is that you never know what each day is going to bring.” – Carri Bright, Community Love.

“Non-stop energy, constant flow of amazing ideas, ever-present drive to improve the world around him, and he loves bacon… no other business leader can claim all of those at once. Simply… Ted rocks.” – Melissah Bruce-Weiner, Account Director.

“Ted is one of those people you can tell genuinely cares not only about his business, but about the people he works with on a daily basis, which is just as important in my opinion. He gives us his trust and confidence to get our jobs done without micromanaging, but is always around to help or listen anytime you need it. Also, he’s the only boss I’ve ever had that comes dancing by my office everyday just to lighten the mood and have fun.” – Crystal Duncan, Director of Client Strategy and Operations.

“Ted once said, ‘David, any pants are fancy pants’. Now, that’s a campaign I can get behind. I don’t think there is another company or CEO in Orlando that would let me be me. When I was a wee part-time intern, I introduced myself to the Ted. The only part of the story that actually matters is the conclusion, in which he ended our brief conversation with a booming, ‘Don’t you ever call me sir again!’ It’s been a love story of drum and bass ever since.” – David Ulrich, Fulfillment.

If you need any more convincing of how great of an individual and visionary Ted is, he’ll be keynoting the Niche Parent Conference. BONUS: You’ll even be able to catch Crystal’s Blogger/Brand Playbook workshop and come say hi to Lynda Galea, Influencer Ecosystem, at the IZEA booth. Can’t make the conference? Then RSVP to see Ted’s panel discussion at Orlando Local Business Summit on September 26!
