Mike Murphy is president and chief executive officer of Sharp HealthCare, overseeing a work force of nearly 14,000 employees, 2,600 affiliated physicians and 2,000 volunteers. But if that doesn't work out, he can always flip burgers.

At Jack in the Box, Murphy sits on a distinguished board that has been recognized by the investment community for its oversight on issues ranging from ethics to strategic planning. In 2002, Jack in the Box was honored by Investor Relations magazine for having the best system of corporate governance among all small-cap companies.
Under Murphy's direction, Sharp has dedicated itself to The Sharp Experience, which is transforming the health care experience for employees, physicians and customers. This focus on purpose and worthwhile work has led to increased employee, physician and patient satisfaction, enhanced loyalty and improved outcomes as Sharp strives to fulfill its vision of becoming the best place to work and practice medicine.
