Cox Communications has named a new leader for its Middle Georgia market.

Im thrilled with the opportunity to expand my role with Cox and assume additional operational responsibilities, Murphey stated in the release.

Prior to accepting her new role, Murphey was the vice president of public affairs for Coxs Florida/Georgia region.

In June 2010, Cox Communications of Middle Georgia realigned its operational divisions which meant the loss of four senior executives, including the position held by Mike Dyer of Macon, who was senior vice president and general manager. Dyer retired as part of the consolidation. The organization was then renamed Cox Florida Georgia Region.
