A local team of local people

Murfet Group is a close knit team of individuals joined by shared values to look after our customers and do all they can to benefit the local community and environment. Our far-reaching level of expertise and experience is present at every level of the company, from our highly qualified architects and surveyors to our construction and commercial managers.

T.R Murfet - Chairman and Founder

T.R Murfet, known mostly as Ricky, set up the business in 1988 following a carpentry apprentice and working with his father to help learn all the aspects of building.

 

Being involved at every level of the business, Ricky is known within the company as someone who would never ask something to be done, if he couldn’t do it himself. He’ll quite often get on a digger or get a hammer out to prove his point.
Ricky built up a successful property and investment portfolio throughout the 80’s and 90’s, before becoming semi-retired in the early years of the millennium, overseeing his portfolio to ensure maximum return for minimum overheads.

Wayne Murfet - Managing Director

After attending private school, Wayne went to university and obtained an Honours degree in Construction Management. Following his time at university, he was employed by Hill Partnerships Ltd as a trainee quantity surveyor.

 

Having reached a commercial manager level at Hills, Wayne joined Murfet Group in 2004 at director level to take over the day to day running of the company. Since joining, Wayne has overseen growth and diversification to the group of companies within their current structure.
