“The launch of Murray Technical is an exciting and significant milestone in our firm’s evolution. Fifteen years ago several of our longtime clients requested that we help them find technical talent. That piece of our business has continued to grow and today, Engineering, IT, and Technical Sales is a significant portion of our firm’s business. It was the right time to officially launch the Murray Technical brand,” said Marsha Murray, President of Murray Resources.
