President & CEO
As the president and CEO of CFM Partners, Elizabeth (Beth) Murphy leads teams of experts that work with governance, risk, and compliance executives in financial services, insurance, higher
education, and consumer goods industries. During the course of the long-term relationships forged with many clients, she has also become their advisor — analyzing needs, recommending solutions, and providing much of the insight behind strategic technologies that address their real-world challenges. Since founding CFM Partners in 1995, Beth has guided the company’s evolution from its early days of consulting and modernizing compliance and education materials, to pioneering cloud-based GRC applications and leveraging the advantages of
Software-as-a-Service to create the high-performance tools for which the company is known.
Beth’s commitment to helping businesses strengthen their governance and streamline risk and compliance management came about largely as a result her firsthand experience. Her career began
on the trading floor, working at the Riggs National Bank and Wheat First Butcher Singer where she earned NASD Series 7 and 63 licenses. This early experience informed her vision for CFM
Partners and the architecture of solutions attuned to the needs of today’s GRC professionals.
A native of Washington, D.C., Beth is a graduate of the American University.
