Erin Murphy has been named the new executive vice president for Boston 2024, a group dedicated to advancing Boston’s bid to host the summer Olympic and Paralympic Games a decade from now.
Murphy will manage the day-to-operations of a group presided over by Dan O’Connell, chief executive of the Massachusetts Competitive Partnership, and chaired by John Fish, chief executive of Suffolk Construction.
Murphy worked for nine years at the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce. When she left in 2011, she was the chamber’s vice president of communications. For the last few years, she has worked as an international business consultant based in Dublin, Ireland.
Last week, the United States Olympic Committee confirmed that Boston had made the “short list” of potential 2024 host candidates. Also on the list are Los Angeles, the host of the successful 1984 Summer Olympics; San Francisco; and Washington, D.C.
