MasterCard today announced the appointment of Tim Murphy to general counsel and chief franchise officer, effective April 1, 2014. The appointment comes as Noah Hanft announces his retirement from MasterCard. Murphy also joins the company's Executive Committee.

Murphy, 46, joined MasterCard's Law department in 2000 and became senior vice president and associate general counsel in 2003. In 2006, Murphy was named group executive, Customer Business Planning and Analysis, and was president of MasterCard's U.S. Region from 2007 to 2009. Murphy then became chief product officer, responsible for leading the management, development and commercialization of MasterCard's core payment solutions.

Before joining MasterCard, Murphy was an associate in the New York and London offices of Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton, an international law firm. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School and from Amherst College.

Since joining MasterCard in 1984, he held positions of increasing responsibility within the Law Department, including that of senior vice president, U.S. Counsel and assistant general counsel. He left MasterCard from 1990 to 1993 and returned to see the company through its acquisition of Europay and he played an instrumental role in MasterCard's transition from an association to a publicly-traded company beginning May 25, 2006.

"I'm pleased to announce his appointment as it reflects our thoughtful approach to succession planning. I'm confident Tim will have continued success in his new role.
