CBIZ MHM Memphis' Client Development Manager, Megan Murdock, has been named a Memphis 'Woman to Watch' by The Commercial Appeal. Megan has lived here her entire life, receiving her Bachelor's in Corporate Communications from Christian Brother's University and a Master's in Public Relations from the University of Memphis. Though she did not have a set career path out of school, she knew she did not want to be in accounting. Now she laughs, because she has worked at CBIZ MHM Memphis
(formerly Thompson Dunavant PLC) for over 6 years and has fallen in love with professional services marketing.
"Since accounting is a little outside my wheelhouse, I really wanted to be able to be taken seriously and talk the lingo and sell it," she said. "I've spent a lot of time training on processes. At the end of the day, I'm not a CPA, so I'm never going to close a deal. However, what I can do is provide the resources to support the people who can do that."
