Julie A. Murray

julie_a._murray_by_anthony_mair_WEBIt wouldn’t surprise us if Julie Murray’s middle initial stood for altruism, given how she embraces it like a lifestyle. As the former CEO and founding president of Three Square, she transformed Southern Nevada’s largest food bank into a nationally recognized, hunger-fighting powerhouse, virtually overnight. Her work at the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation also paved the way for a college preparatory academy geared toward students from financially poor neighborhoods. These days, Murray runs Moonridge Group, a local company dedicated to helping organizations get the most out of their philanthropic ventures. She is a welcome reminder of the good that’s still at work in this city.
