Cary, NC — November 7, 2012 – Beverly Murray, CEO of R+M, was elected to the Triangle Family Services Advisory Board during the organization’s August 2012 meeting. Her four-year term begins in November 2012.

As a Raleigh native and 20-year business owner, Ms. Murray annually commits resources to her community: from various board seats, such as CED, ACG and currently Schoolhouse of Wonder; to in-kind and financial contributions in support of the Raleigh City Museum, Artsplosure, Sassafras All Children’s Playground and Interfaith Food Shuttle. She has earned the respect of her peers and has been recognized with the TBJ Platinum Rule Award for community service and induction into the YWCA Academy of Women.

“None of us are immune to the challenges of this economy. It stretches every family, no matter how strong, financially and emotionally. Along the way some of our neighbors may need more support than others to make it to the other side. That’s where Triangle Family Services steps in … they arm families with the tools and resources to re-think, re-build and re-energize for the battle ahead. For example, when I learned that they helped 4,000 families avoid foreclosure in 2011, I could not say no. I love being part of an organization that is strengthening our community one family at a time,” shared Beverly Murray.

R+M CEO Joins In The Fight For Community

As a member of the advisory board, Ms. Murray will provide counsel specific to the organization’s growth and sustainability strategies, ensuring the organization is able to meet the needs of the community today and tomorrow.

Beverly brings a breadth and depth of knowledge and skill set in strategic thought and execution of strategies. Her strengths include the ability to listen AND provide thoughtful directional options. We are honored she is choosing TFS as a strategic alliance for her marketing and brand development skills,” shared Alice Lutz, CEO, Triangle Family Services.
