Tammy Snyder Murphy and her husband, Phil Murphy, have been owners of Gotham FC since the club’s founding in 2008. The Murphys have guided the club through its membership in multiple professional women’s leagues including, in 2013, when Sky Blue FC became a founding member of the National Women’s Soccer League.

Serving as Chair of the club, Tammy provides strategic guidance on operational issues and collaborates with management on key personnel decisions.

Over the years, Tammy has worked with non-profits, a think-tank, and other organizations focused on the environment, education, women’s health, the arts, and youth and family services. Tammy worked in finance in the U.S. and Europe and has traveled extensively throughout the world, living overseas in London, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, and Berlin. She speaks Italian and is fluent in German.

Tammy has always believed in collaborative problem-solving through coalition-building and personal engagement. It is a central theme of her life, whether running for student office during college, thriving in the competitive and male-dominated finance industry, starting and working with nonprofits, or joining the Women’s March in Trenton. She is passionate that women and girls receive treatment equal to that of men and boys. Tammy earned a Bachelor of Arts in English and Communications at the University of Virginia, where she sits on the University’s Board of Visitors. She also serves as Secretary and charter member of The Climate Reality Action Fund, an organization founded by former Vice-President Al Gore.

Since January 2018, Tammy has served as the First Lady of the State of New Jersey.
