Former O'Malley Adviser Joins UMES Administration

Posted:

PRINCESS ANNE, MD – Dominick E. Murray, a widely respected business development professional, is joining UMES President Juliette B. Bell's senior management team as the university's acting executive director of business and economic development.

Murray's primary role is to develop and implement the university's strategic plan for building business relationships and promoting the university's engagement in economic development of the region and state.

“I am delighted to have someone with Dominick's experience joining my team to help the university maximize its opportunities to engage with the business community," Bell said.

Murray previously served as former Gov. Martin O'Malley's secretary of business and economic development, a post he held from February 2013 until just before O'Malley left office this past January. He joined the agency in 2007 as an assistant secretary of regional development and also served as its deputy secretary from 2009 to 2013.

From 2002 to 2007, Murray was the City of Baltimore's economic development officer when O'Malley was mayor.

A native of Michigan, Murray has also worked in the private sector for the Chrysler Corp. and Westinghouse Electric Corp. He attended Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit for two years, where he studied philosophy and theology, and earned a bachelor's degree in radio and television communications from the University of Detroit in 1976.

He had an extensive background in sales and marketing in the private sector before entering public life as an agency administrator.

Murray begins his duties Monday at UMES.
