H. David Murray
Founder & Chairman
Office: (706) 350-4300
MGroupTM Founder and Chairman, H. David Murray, resides in Naples, Florida, and is a Business School graduate of The Florida State University. Murray began his career in the carpet industry in 1977 with Milliken & Company, a U.S.-based textile producer. In 1985, Murray joined Columbus Mills, Inc. as Vice President of Sales and was later tapped to lead the new commercial division, Lotus Carpets, as Executive Vice President. He successfully developed unique market strategies, which grew the business into one of the top three largest carpet hospitality manufacturers, providing products to almost every major world hospitality brand.
In the 1990s, the U.S. carpet industry rapidly consolidated, with the number of manufacturers decreasing from 300 to less than 30 by early 2000. Murray saw unique opportunities ahead and left the carpet industry to develop new programs such as granite and marble fabrication from offshore sources, under what is now the MGroupTM brand.
Murray has four sons, three of whom work for the company – Scott as Vice President of Manufacturing & Product Development, Drew as Vice President of Business Development, and Michael as Southwest Regional Manager.
