John T. Murphy

For the past nine years, John Murphy has led sales and customer marketing at Seventh Generation, resulting in a more than 10-fold increase in overall business performance and in helping the company deliver against its mission to inspire a consumer revolution that nurtures the health of the next seven generations. Seventh Generation’s name is derived from The Great Law of the Iroquois Confederacy which states, "In our every deliberation we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations." Inspired by this Iroquois belief, John strives to act with the knowledge that business belongs to a larger system in which everything is interconnected. Along with his fellow Seventh Generation community members, John works tirelessly to inspire others to initiate positive change in the world through innovation, education, and interaction. John lives in Charlotte, Vermont, with his wife Alaina and three children: Tyler, Rhian and Jalen.

Seventh Generation is the nation’s leading brand of household and personal care products that help protect human health and the environment. Established in 1988, the Burlington, Vermont-based company’s business practices focus on offering people varied avenues to express their idealism, passion and commitment to causes larger than themselves.
