About this Event

The Famous 5 Foundation proudly welcomes Lara Murphy to share her stories at the Enbridge Famous 5 Speaker Series on Monday November 18, 2019. Lara started Ryan Murphy Construction (RMC) Inc. in 2008 and their company is Calgary’s only female owned commercial construction company. The company has been recognized and featured in The Globe & Mail, PROFIT 500 (ranking #1 fastest growing YYC business in 2016), Canadian Business (Top 100), Chatelaine, Alberta Venture (Fast Growth 50) and MacLean’s Magazine.

Lara Murphy was only 16 when she started her first business, Handy Student Maintenance, in New Brunswick. During her studies at Mount Allison University, Lara’s painting business expanded to include maintenance and renovations for homes and yachts. She soon discovered she was more an entrepreneur than a student of history and political science and while playing competitive soccer internationally, Lara’s passion for architecture intensified as she traveled. This led her to start Fresco – a heritage restoration firm.

In 2005, Lara moved to Alberta and her entrepreneurial spirit again led her to launch her own construction company, All Seasons. It was during this time, Lara met Karen Ryan on a construction site in Banff. With a shared vision of wanting to create a business with an objective to be more approachable, transparent and educational within the construction industry, they started RMC Inc. Over the years, their company has grown and its diverse portfolio includes working with companies such as the Sheraton, UNDRCARD, Telus Spark, Junction 9 Yoga, Village Ice Cream, TWT, Gravity Café and The Vin Room

RMC Inc. is proud to partner with several community initiatives in Calgary such as Calgary Reads, SAIT, Fast & Female, Accessible Housing, Scotia Bank Charity Marathon, YWCA and Beakerhead.

Lara is also the Director of Business Development for RMC Inc., and currently serves on the on The YWCA Board of Directors and several advisory committees.

Tickets: $85 each or Tables of 8 are available for $680.
