Jeremy Murphy

Founder

Jeremy Murphy is the founder of 360bespoke, a media agency that provides public relations, content development, reputation management, and crisis communications for clients in categories such as luxury, the arts, fashion/ beauty, hospitality, travel, media, start-ups, and entrepreneurs. Recently profiled in Authority Magazine, he is especially known for securing marquee media placements for a quirky collection of clients who include a violinist, skincare brand, celebrity cosmetics line, fashion labels, world-renowned florist, and opera star, among others. Previously, Murphy spent 14 years at CBS where he served many roles as a Vice President, most notably as a company spokesperson and editor-in-chief. In addition, he is a respected speechwriter, having worked with shoe designer Steve Madden on his address to the Accessories Council; Elle magazine editor in chief Nina Garcia; media executive Dawn Ostroff (Spotify, Conde Nast, CW network) and artists like Usher, Dolly Parton, Indya Moore, and Issa Rae. Murphy is authoring a new book, “Fuck Off, Chloe: Surviving the OMGs! and FMLs! in your Media Career” (SkyHorse Publishing), which will be out March 1. The book, currently available for pre-sale on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, is being distributed by Simon & Schuster. “F*ck Off, Chloe” has received major news coverage since it was announced, including features in WWD, Daily Front Row, Bella, Kevin Jackson, Polo DeMarco and Simply the Best. Murphy appeared on Dr. Drew in September to talk about the book. He is also working on a 13-episode filmed series with actor producer James Brolin and producer Scott Hart about a global mystery involving linage, stolen art, the Italian Renaissance, Vatican secrets and the Medici dynasty.

At 360bespoke, which he launched in 2016, Murphy has achieved national media placements for his clients in Vanity Fair, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Today, Robb Report, US Weekly, Vogue, People, New York Post, WWD, Beauty Inc., Cigar Aficionado, Allure, InStyle, Live with Kelly and Ryan, USA Today, Fox Business, New Beauty, Town & Country, New York magazine, Billboard, The New Yorker, Travel + Leisure, Elle, Bazaar, Good Day New York, KTLA Los Angeles, WNBC-TV New York, Scripps Broadcasting, Inside Edition, Yahoo Business, Sinclair/Full Measure, KGO San Francisco, WGN-TV Chicago, Gotham, Denver Post, Miami Herald, Newsday, AMNY, Cheddar and the Daily Front Row among many other outlets. He has distinguished the firm as a destination for first class clientele, including Rinna Beauty, the cosmetics brand by “lip pioneer” Lisa Rinna … veteran perfume creator Sue Phillips, the “nose that knows” … celebrity violinist/ fashion muse Charlie Siem … critically-acclaimed opera star Iestyn Davies … artistic director, taste maker and florist Jeff Leatham, famous for his work at the George V Hotel Paris … UK skin care brand Heaven by Deborah Mitchell … Go Dash Dot, a maker of sophisticated and functional bags for women … The Quiver, an AirBNB-style surfboard rental company … spa brand Cornelia at The Surrey hotel … French fashion label Vicomte-A among others. 360bespoke was profiled in both New York Lifestyles and Resident magazine about these efforts.

In April 2021, 360bespoke celebrated its 5th anniversary with a seven day video series featuring congratulations from clients, supporters and friends of the agency, including James Brolin, Neil Patrick Harris, Mayim Bialik, Matt Lanter, Eric Rutherford, Eric Close, Cote dePablo and several more bold-faced names. The videos, created by editor Bryan Haneo, debuted throughout the week, including Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6 and Part 7.

This year, 360bespoke also collaborated with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars to feature Siem in its “Inspiring Greatness” documentary series profiling artists. The automaker filmed the musician recording his album Between the Clouds, following him throughout the process. The project premiered to great success, debuting across all Rolls-Royce digital platforms.

Murphy also co-hosts a popular podcast called “The Giggle” with media colleague Beth Feldman on Blog Talk Radio. The weekly conversation has won plaudits for its originality and breezy, fun topics. “With Beth’s stand-up quality, tell-it-like-it-is humor and Jeremy’s caustic-style wit, they started to broadcast their conversations with a weekly podcast called The Giggle,” wrote critic Adam Morgan. “Since launching they’ve steadily grown their audience to include friends and colleagues, members of the media, and random listeners who like to hear a funny talk between friends … it’s the reason why he Giggle has so many giggling.” Guests have included taste-maker/ influencer Eric Rutherford, New York Times columnist Stuart Elliot, Avenue editor-in-chief Ben Widdicombe, famed astrologer Virginia Bell, gossip columnist Rob Shuter, political analyst Luis Miranda, D-Day Girls author Sarah Rose and other media, politics and lifestyle luminaries.

Murphy gained industry recognition at CBS where he created and edited its glossy magazine Watch, which redefined the perception of custom publishing. As its editor-in-chief, he built a respected masthead that featured top editorial talents like world-famous photographers Patrick Demarchelier, Ellen von Unwerth, Art Streiber and Ruven Afanodor, as well as fashion authority Kate Betts (former editor of Harper’s Bazaar and Time Design & Style); Time magazine columnist Joel Stein; New York Times contributors Ben Widdicombe, Frank DeCaro and Stuart Elliot; and Allure senior editor Kristin Perrotta as contributors. Working with these creative forces, he infused the magazine’s pages with elegant and timeless features, including recreations of French Impressionist paintings at the celebrated Hotel Plaza Athénée Paris; homages to Christian Dior and Babe Paley; and a cover shoot with actress Julianna Margulies by Demarchelier at the Hotel du Cap in the Côte d’Azur. The strategy successfully transitioned Watch from a publication to a brand encompassing print, television, online, video and social media. The pivot to luxury editorial also helped attract labels such as Tom Ford, YSL, Giorgio Armani, Dior, Givenchy, Salvatore Ferragamo, Valentino, Hugo Boss, Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton and Peninsula hotels as advertisers.

Murphy also introduced culture into the magazine in a regular section called Muse which provided the inspiration to start 360bespoke several years later. The section featured profiles of artists/cultural figures like Fran Lebowitz, Thierry Despont, Thomas Keller, Michael Kors and future 360 clients Siem, Davies and Leatham. As part of the pivot to culture, Murphy started a salon series in conjunction with The Surrey hotel in New York and Cornelia spa to highlight artists and foster intimate conversation between them and a knowing audience. Over four years, the series hosted talents like Fran Lebowitz, Kate Betts, Siem and Davies, who participated in spirited conversations with moderators like Derek Blassberg.

In 2014, Murphy collaborated with violinist Siem, who wrote his first composition, “Canopy,” for Watch. Murphy used Siem’s music as a theme song for the magazine’s digital platforms, marketing efforts and sales campaigns, which was hailed by The New York Times as a new model in media: the first print publication to create an original “soundtrack” to transform magazine into a brand. CBS used Siem’s recording for three years, including campaigns narrated by Julianna Margulies (2016), Michael Weatherly (2015) and Pauley Perrette (2014). The project was a collaboration between the magazine, CBS and Team One, a division of Saatch & Saatchi specializing in luxury marketing.

Murphy also helped produce a documentary for the Pop network that went behind the scenes of its photo shoots in London. In addition, he launched CBS Interactive’s CNET magazine, a quarterly publication featuring the online brand’s reviews, features, product previews and personalities. Murphy served as General Manager of the magazine, helping build a readership of 1 million across the country as well as newsstand placement throughout the US.

In 2017, Murphy was featured in Channel 4 UK’s documentary “A Very British Hotel,” which gave viewers a behind-the-scenes peek at the operations of the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park London. Murphy, a “fan” of the brand and the London hotel, appeared in all four episodes, which were syndicated around the world.

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.

In 2010, Murphy was inducted into the Florida Atlantic University Alumni Hall of Fame.

My definition of heaven is … A night of good sleep

One thing I never leave home without … My Goyard wallet, which is worth more than anything in it

First thing I do in the morning is … Read WWD. It’s the best reported news for fashion/ media/ lifestyle worlds

Favorite travel accessory … Global Entry!

My personal style is … Preppy chic

Favorite designer is … Tom Ford

What I wore today … this week has been all about comfort — Vilebrequin shorts, Huel T-shirt and Hermes sandals

Favorite musician(s) … Charlie Siem

Ski or après ski? .. Apres, with a scotch by the fireplace

Favorite Hotel … Hotel Plaza Athénée in Paris. It is so glamorous and chic. Everything is exquisite and Parisian, and the service is impeccable. You can’t not feel like a star when you stay there.

Favorite scent and the memory it triggers … Desert Rose by Jeff Leatham for KKW Fragrance

Favorite drink … Macallan 18 on the rocks with a splash of water. For wine, Brunello (specifically from Castiglion del Bosco in Tuscany)

Favorite Restaurants … Living in New York gives you plenty of options but I like my creature comforts: Felice, an Italian wine bar on East Side; The Polo Bar, Ralph Lauren’s restaurant in midtown (those pigs-in-the-blanket get me every time); Jean Georges at The Mark; J.G. Mellon, a dive bar famous for their burgers. Outside of New York, I love the French Laundry in Napa Valley. Abroad, I’m obsessed with Bar Boulud inside the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park London (and the “BB” — a burger made with beef patty, foie gras, short ribs, horseradish mayoconfit tomato, black onion); L’Atelier Joel Robuchon in Paris (made even better by a bottle of Châteauneuf-du-Pape); La Colombe D’Or, a restaurant in St. Paul de Vance in South of France, famous for being Picasso’s favorite spot (he sketched on cocktail napkins to pay his bill); Vino Vino, a tucked-in Italian restaurant off a side street in Venice; and the bar at the Four Seasons Milan, which has the freshest mozzarella I’ve ever tasted

Favorite Bar … I can’t single out one! King Cole @ St. Regis for nostalgic reasons. Bar Hemingway at The Ritz in Paris. Bar Boulud in the Mandarin Oriental London. Bemelman’s in the Carlyle. The lounge at the Hotel Bel Air

Favorite Store … Bergdorf Goodman — you can’t go wrong. Great selection, high quality and the restaurants are fabulous. I especially like the new Goodman’s Bar in the men’s store (great turkey sandwich, lol). Also, for sentimental reasons, Tom Ford on Madison and 61st. Although I do miss his Mad and 70th store — many great memories there.

Least Favorite drink … Cheap wine. Go big or go home. I also hate that big ice cube bartenders think is so cool. It’s not; it’s a tiresome fad.

Favorite destination … Paris. I dream of being there constantly. And London. So many friends and memories. Cannot wait to get back!

When I go to a five star hotel, the first thing(s) I do is … Turn on BBC World and jump on the bed

Personal motto  … Pay it forward

Proudest Moment … There are three — working with Charlie Siem on his composition of “Canopy” and turning it into a CBS marketing campaign (watch it HERE!), being accepted for membership at 5 Hertford Street in London and, finally, launching 360bespoke!

Pet peeve(s) … People who don’t tip well. A true reflection of your character. Leave 20 percent. It won’t kill you. Also, when you are having a conversation and someone says, “I have a better idea.” No, you have a different idea

My favorite movie quote … Miranda Priestly:  “Find me that piece of paper I had in my hand yesterday.” I also love Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford in Mommy Dearest. “I’m not mad at you, I’m mad at the dirt”

Best thing to do on a rainy Saturday night … Lately, watch Netflix or Amazon and completely unplug. Selfish, I know

I most often dream about … Buying a vineyard in Provence and inviting friends for lazy, boozy wine dinners

My guiltiest guilty pleasure is … The Real Real. Really! Its fabulous
