Meet the Methuen General Manager: Keith Murphy

While our Big Blue swim instructors make swim lessons so special for your kids, it's the managers who keep our swim school operations running so smoothly day-to-day. Keith Murphy is the General Manager at Big Blue Swim School Methuen. In this interview, Keith shares his background and gives insight into what it's like to work at Big Blue Swim School. We encourage you to give it a read, and say hi to Keith when Big Blue Methuen opens!

What is you background?

I was born in Dracut, Massachusetts and went to college in Maryland at Mount Saint Mary's University. For several years, I've lived in Baltimore and Los Angeles. I currently reside in Boston and couldn't be happier about it!

I have a background in Fitness and Tech, in both cases with a direct focus on helping others hit their goals, whether it be professional or personal. Before Big Blue, I've worked in a variety of management roles mostly in the fitness industry, most recently as a Regional Director for Orange Theory Fitness.

Why are you passionate about Big Blue Swim School?

I love being part of a company that is focused on contributing to the betterment and safety of the community, while creating fun and amazing experiences for children!

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Outside of work, I love the outdoors - boating, biking, hiking and SWIMMING! We are fortunate in Massachusetts and New Hampshire to have so many beaches and lakes to spend time in the water. My favorite memories of growing up were our family vacations with all the cousins, uncles and aunts to Lake Winnipesaukee. I love going back up north and watching my nieces and nephews get to experience all the fun you can have on the water.

Think Fast!

Where would you visit, anywhere in the world, if it was free? I've always wanted to visit New Zealand.

What is your favorite season of the year? Fall, I love the change of weather but it never lasts long enough!

What do you love about Big Blue? The opportunity to make a career by helping kids and becoming part of the community!
