Paul Murphy

Senior Associate / Senior Project Manager

"We take pride in being able to build trust with our clients by providing solutions that lead to positive results. It is rewarding when you step back from a completed project to know you played a part in making it a success.”

Trying to maximize opportunities is second nature to Paul. Outside the office, this takes shape on the fairway as he makes the most of Minnesota’s abbreviated summer golf season. At work and over a span of almost three decades, his efforts are demonstrated through his management of a myriad of agribusiness-related projects from retrofits to large-scale greenfield sites.

Paul’s domestic and international experience with feed mills, grain export terminals, pet food plants and flour mills offers clients versatile conceptual and material handling design knowledge. His genial personality and candor with VAA client teams creates a platform for honest conversation and opportunities to share industry knowledge within the firm at all levels. For his clients, this means better end products and assurance that their needs are heard.

Prior to joining VAA, Paul worked for a design-build contractor where he acquired information on process equipment services and slipform construction. He is a proven provider of the level of engineering, planning and communication required to effectively facilitate construction activities. Paul’s reputation in the industry to provide clients with quality constructable designs is incorporated into the projects he manages at VAA.
