Diversity Leadership: Bruce D. Murphy, KeyCorp

Bruce D. Murphy
Executive Vice President and Head of Corporate Responsibility

The son of a politically engaged steelworker from Youngstown, Ohio, Bruce Murphy learned from a young age that community involvement goes a long way, he told DiversityInc. Like his father, who was a union president, Murphy saw the value in listening to the needs of the community.

As President of Community Development Banking, Murphy was instrumental in the creation of KeyBank Plus, a program of services and free financial education geared toward members of low-income groups who may not be familiar with traditional banking. Head of Corporate Responsibility since 2013, Murphy oversees the bank’s community-development lending, workplace diversity, supplier diversity and environmental sustainability.

Murphy’s KeyCorp career began in 1990, when he joined the human-resources department at AmeriTrust, which later merged with Society Corp, Key’s predecessor. Previously, he spent a dozen years in retail and human resources at Mellon National Bank in Pittsburgh.

Murphy earned a bachelor’s degree in communications and a master’s in public administration from the University of Pittsburgh. He sits on the boards of numerous organizations, including Cuyahoga Community College, The McGregor Foundation, BAI and the Center for Financial Services Innovation. He is a member of Leadership Cleveland and serves on the FDIC Advisory Committee on Economic Inclusion.
