Tom Murphy, Communications Manager

The SV@Home Team is thrilled to welcome Thomas Murphy, Tom, as our new Communications Manager! Tom brings more than thirty years of experience in the planning and execution of external communications. In his previous role, Tom served as a communications professional in the technology industry concentrating mostly on semiconductor firms in the Silicon Valley and around the world.

Tom’s first encounter with Silicon Valley’s affordable housing issues came in 1999 when his landlord imposed a thirty-five percent increase in monthly rental fees while he was earning industry recognition for his business reporting as Senior Editor at Electronic News.

Before that, he earned a journalism award for his work on an environmental clean-up of the beach town of Avila Beach as a Senior Reporter for the Santa Maria Times.

Tom earned a bachelor’s degree in English from The College of New Jersey. In his spare time, he enjoys the beach, redwoods, and breathtaking sunsets with his family.

So why did Tom choose to join the SV@Home Team?

“I’m excited to join the Silicon Valley at Home team to expand affordable housing opportunities. This group is serving a vitally important role in improving the quality of life in one of the most expensive places on Earth to live. It’s a very inspirational mission.”
