Sen. Murray to join WMA

Senior VP will work in corporate consulting division

Longtime state Sen. Kevin Murray (D-Los Angeles) has elected to join the William Morris Agency as a senior VP after next month’s votes. Murray was required to leave the California Senate after 12 years because of term limits.

Murray will work in corporate consulting division William Morris Consulting.

As a state senator, Murray authored legislation making it illegal to send email spam and to use a camcorder in a movie theater. He also pushed for incentive bills to counter runaway production.

“While we will miss his leadership in Sacramento, California Legislature’s loss is our gain,” said WMA chief exec Jim Wiatt. “Kevin brings with him a tremendous array of relationships, professional experience and industry savvy that will broaden our capabilities and deepen our expertise on behalf of our clients.”

Murray began his career in the WMA mailroom in 1982. Murray became an agent in the WMA music department. He simultaneously finished his MBA and law degrees and then left WMA in 1989.

He was first elected to the California Legislature in 1994, representing the 47th Assembly District. After two terms, he was elected to the state Senate representing the 26th District in L.A.
