With a background and education in business and law, Brian Abernethy is a multifaceted leader for Contractor Marketing Pros. He finds calm in efficiency, and is most satisfied by solving the very real and very personal problems of our clients. Brian also is a sports fanatic who regularly wins (or at least does really well in) his fantasy leagues and roots for the Texas Rangers. Brian lives with his wife and children in Austin and with the greenbelt right outside of his door, he comes into work with mud on his shoes at least once a week.

Ryan Murphy has been working with and understanding computers, programming and music for as long as he can remember. He's developed a friendship and respect for what computers can do for us and also how they can teach us. Having experienced the frustrations of our standard methods of schooling, Ryan is passionate about helping those around him learn as they would naturally. Whether it is helping someone learn how to play the piano without the newbie embarrassment, or diving into the fascinating and abstract world of artificial intelligence with a few like minded folks, Ryan is a quiet force for making those around him better. You can find Ryan on his bike all over Austin, and sometimes he even carries around a full sized keyboard in his backpack - you never know when inspiration will strike and impromptu bands are some of the best kind.

After 5 years of building homes and buildings in Austin, John Turpin merged his passion of construction with his ever present curiousity of software and computers and helped found Contractor Marketing Pros. He leads the technical development efforts and helps with design, business development, sales, marketing, planning and more. He pretty much likes to do it all and is greatly satisfied in excellent and elegant solutions. He might believe that good design really will change the world more than know and always finds himself enchanted by the new art being created right now. Also from Austin, John enjoys mid-century and modern architecture, cooking with friends and asking good questions.
