OUR EXECUTIVE

Crispin Murphy

Managing Partner

Trevor Murphy

Managing Partner

Britt Hilton

VP Business Operations

Crispin has been involved in computing since before he entered kindergarten. Born and raised in Victoria, he’s a 26-year veteran of both MYRA and the IT industry.  

As Managing Partner, Crispin applies his business savvy and technical background to ensure MYRA and its customers continue to operate at optimal performance. He is hyper focused on meeting customer needs and maintaining MYRA’s rock-solid reputation. 

Crispin’s demonstrated successes for MYRA and customers include delivering projects on time and on budget, team building, managing risk both internally and for customers, and providing technical oversight and architectural direction.

 

When he’s not leading MYRA, you’ll find Crispin hanging with his kids on their acreage.

Even though he’s floated in Zero Gravity (yes for real) Trevor likes to stay grounded and focused.

Trevor has experience delivering services and working with private sector and governments including federal, provincial & municipal.  He is proficient in governance, procurement, organizational transformation, communications, and complex contract negotiations. He has led teams of all sizes – scaling from small businesses to multi-national IT service providers.  He provides executive oversight and helps guide our team’s long-term strategy.

Trevor’s candid, direct, and collaborative approach makes him easy to talk to and even easier to work with. At MYRA, he helps elevate our team and everyone around him.

Britt arrived in Victoria in 1984 to attend the University of Victoria and never left. The great golfing on the island may have had something to do with it. 

Britt joined MYRA in 1989 and is currently MYRA’s VP of Business Operations.

 

His responsibilities include managing MYRA’s sales team, leading the business development efforts, and working closely with MYRA’s product vendors and distribution partners.

 

He also lends support to various internal operational activities focused on increasing efficiency and profitability.  

Britt’s a great leader – but that’s just par for the course at MYRA.
