Now a distinguished fifth generation plumber, the nature of the plumbing industry became second nature to Mr. Shawn Murray in his formative years. Having originally pursued an education in engineering, he switched to a major in business to further highlight his skills in mathematics and management. In 2017, he achieved a Bachelor of Arts in business administration from Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas. During the course of his collegiate studies, he was involved in Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges, Alpha Chi National Honor Society and Beta Gamma Sigma. Likewise, Mr. Murray was a GLO-BUS Best-Strategy International Invitational Finalist and was named to the President’s Honor Roll.
Following his graduation, Mr. Murray’s grandfather offered him the opportunity to take over the family plumbing business. Despite his initial reluctance, he accepted and received training from the company’s staff and his grandmother, as his grandfather passed away before he could show him the ropes himself. Since 2017, Mr. Murray has notably served as the president and chief executive officer of Murray Plumbing Co., LLC in San Antonio, Texas. Specializing in walk-in showers, bathtubs, water heaters and more, Murray Plumbing is renowned for driving excellent results and efficiency through core competencies of communication, promptness and thoroughness. Notably, the company holds membership with the Better Business Bureau, Greater San Antonio Builders Association, National Federation of Independent Business and Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Contractors. In addition to his executive roles, Mr. Murray has also served as a key executive since 2017 and a general manager since 2011.
Looking back on his illustrious career, Mr. Murray attributes the bulk of his success to his family and his college professors. He feels honored to have learned from educators with first-hand business owning knowledge, as well as his own parents who taught him many great values and guiding him to having a strong work ethic. In total, he believes his work ethic is what has carried him to where he is today. In five years’ time, Mr. Murray plans to continue to grow the business to become the top plumbing company to work for in San Antonio. Additionally, he hopes to build stronger ties and impact with the local community, as he is currently involved with Charity Home Builders. Presently, Mr. Murray maintains affiliation with the Plumbing Heating Contracting Association, Greater San Antonio Builders Association and American Subcontractors Association. In his free time, he enjoys listening to audio books, reading about business tycoons and traveling.
