Jeremy Murphy is president and founder of 360bespoke, overseeing strategy, business development and day-to-day operations. Previously, Murphy spent 14 years at CBS where he served many roles as a Vice President of Communications. During this time, he worked across the entire span of the company, providing media relations functions to divisions as varied as television, radio, outdoor media and its interactive businesses.
Murphy’s most significant achievement at CBS was creating and managing its glossy entertainment/ luxury magazine Watch!, which redefined the model and perception of custom publishing. Under Murphy’s direction, Watch! became a mass-interest consumer magazine with readership of 1 million. As its editor chief he built one of the most respected mastheads in publishing, recruiting top editorial talents like world-famous fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier; Kate Betts, the youngest editor-in-chief in Harper’s Bazaar history; Kristin Perrotta, a 20-year Conde Nast veteran who became the #2 editor at Allure; legendary Village Voice columnist Michael Musto; Stuart Elliott, a 30-year veteran of The New York Times as contributors, among many others. Working with those talents Murphy was able to infuse the magazine’s pages with elegant and timeless features and photo shoots, including recreations of French Impressionist paintings with CBS talents in Paris, homages to Christian Dior and Babe Paley, and a cover shoot with actress Julianna Margulies by Demarchelier at the Hotel dup in the Cote d’Azur. The strategy successfully transitioned Watch into a brand that encompassed all media, from print and television to online, video and social media. The pivot to luxury editorial helped attract brands such as Tom Ford, YSL, Giorgio Armani, Dior, Givenchy, Salvatore Ferragamo, Valentino, Hugo Boss, Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton and Peninsula hotels as advertisers.
In 2014, Murphy collaborated with internationally-renowned violinist and fashion muse Charlie Siem to write the virtuoso's first musical composition for growing Watch! brand. Murphy used Siem’s music as a theme-song for all the magazine’s digital editorial platforms and marketing and sales campaigns. The project was hailed by The New York Times as a revolutionary model in media; the first print brand to create an original “soundtrack” to transform its brand into a leader into interactive marketing.
Murphy also helped launch CBS Interactive’s CNET magazine, a quarterly print magazine featuring the online brand’s reviews, features, product previews and personalities. Murphy served as General Manager of the publication, helping build a readership of 1 million across the country and newsstand placement throughout the country.
Before CBS Murphy worked as a reporter at Mediaweek, where he covered the nation’s top 50 markets. He began as a feature writer with Knight Ridder newspapers.
