Executive Team


Jennifer Dillard
Chief Executive Officer & President

Jennifer drives a customer-first approach through every detail of the Murphy’s Corporate Lodging experience. Her commitment to delivering apartments that guests want to call home has brought continued success to Murphy’s and its clients over her 20-year career with the company.

Since joining Murphy’s in 1995 to launch its first outside sales team, Jennifer has brought an unwavering focus on client care and employee development to the company. These factors have been instrumental in Murphy’s growth across Texas and in the company’s ability to support clients in other cities, both domestically and abroad.

Jennifer began her career studying fashion design and moved into retail sales, which allowed her to learn firsthand that quality is found in the details. Whether she’s personally testing new housewares in her home to ensure they meet Murphy’s standards, mentoring the sales team, or supporting clients, Jennifer is truly invested in Murphy’s success.


Brent Berridge, PE, PMP
General Manager & Chief Operational Officer

Brent brings decades of experience in engineering and process implementation to Murphy’s from his work in the oil and gas and information technology industries. Through this disciplined approach, he is implementing and upgrading internal processes that increase Murphy’s agility and enable the company to meet and exceed expectations daily.

Brent’s early career as an engineering consultant kept him on the road 50% of the time — an ideal way to learn how critical it is to have a comfortable home away from home. His later experience in the technology and software industries gave him a background in project management and quality control across many projects and businesses. These disciplines can be leveraged to improve any business, creating greater value for our clients.
