The International Design Guild (IDG) has named longtime CCA Global team member Brian Murphy as its new director. Murphy has been with CCA Global Partners since 2004 as a senior business consultant with Flooring America.  

In his new role, Murphy will focus on membership driven initiatives including member engagement, sourcing exclusive products and IDG’s Design for a Difference charity outreach.

Keith Spano, president of International Design Guild, said Murphy’s extensive retail history along with his successful tenure with CCA led to naming Murphy to his new role as director.

"Brian is a great fit to lead IDG, not only because of his deep understanding and knowledge of the industry given 17 years history with us, but because he is passionate about helping independently owned businesses,” Spano said. “He’s dedicated to helping owners operate more efficiently while achieving their business goals. We’re looking forward to the innovation he’ll bring to this next chapter for IDG.”
