Mr. Murphy grew up in Douglas and furthered his education at Rochestown College before moving on to Cork Institute of Technology where Cian received his degree in Business Information Systems. Keen to work in business and interested in joining a corporate environment, Cian opted for a career at Benchmark International.

Under Cian’s guidance, the team thinks creatively and analytically in each situation and uses key tools skilfully to achieve the desired results.


Cian has worked on several transactions, with his repertoire including a wealth of successes such as the acquisitions of O’Flynn Medical; Smith & Kennedy Architects; Real Regulatory; Velopi; Don O'Malley & Partners; and Writech Industrial Services, Benchmark International Europe’s largest transaction to date.


The key driving point for Cian is to succeed, and he is passionate about delivering the best possible result when he puts his mind to a task. He is grateful to be part of a team that are equally driven to succeed and actively assist business owners in making positive changes to their lives.
