Pip Murphy is a senior leader with over twenty years of experience in corporate, non-profit and advisory environments. While Pip's work has always started with strategy in mind, she is passionate about building great teams, evidenced by her success in leading large projects as one of the managers in Westpac's Corporate Strategy division. In recent years Pip has been coaching executives and working with high potential cohorts to drive leadership development and team effectiveness.
Pip brings her extensive experience in consulting and financial services, combined with academic credentials when working through the complexities of her clients situations, at an individual and organisational level.
Pip worked at Westpac between 2010-2015 in a variety of leadership roles including Head of Group and Product Strategy and Head of Customer Experience at St. George Bank. She worked closely with senior executives to help them design and communicate upwards to the Board and down through the organisation. These strategies required major adaptive change within the organisation, especially in the years following the GFC. Pip's most recent role at Westpac was leading Diversity and Flexibility where she drove a refresh of the strategy.
Prior to that, Pip was consultant at Bain & Company where she provided strategic, acquisition and operational advice to senior executives across a broad range of industries. In the early years of her career, Pip was an Australian equities trader in New York, where she led the offshore trading function in the USA for both Prudential Securities and ABN Amro.
Pip holds an MPA from Harvard University, an MBA from The AGSM, and a Bachelor of Business from University of Technology Sydney.
She is accredited in a range of psychological instruments including Hogan Assessments, Life Styles Inventory (LSI) and the Brain Based Coaching method through the Neuroleadership Institute.
