Paula Summers Murphy



Paula joined VFG in March of 2017 as Director of Business Development in Charleston, South Carolina.


Paula graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering. After a 17-year career in the Real Estate Development Industry (which included Environmental Site Assessments, Managing Land Development, and Engineering Projects), she joined VFG and brought along with her the valuable project management skills and engineering expertise she developed along the way.


Paula says the team at VFG is second to none in the industry and she is proud to be part of a company with such high integrity.


Thanks to her engineering background, Paula quickly grasps complex technologies and processes. As a critical thinker and analytic problem solver, she has a keen ability to truly dive deep, understand, and listen to her customer’s business and equipment needs. She strives to provide a high level of personal attention to every opportunity she encounters.


Paula enjoys tennis, yoga, biking, and weekends at Folly Beach with her husband Patrick and their son Colin. Patrick, Paula, and Colin are active in environmental stewardship and enjoy traveling to the North Carolina and Georgia mountains for hiking and fishing.


Paula roots for Georgia Tech, the Pittsburgh Penguins, and loves to cheer for her son whether it’s on the courts or the stage.
