Erich Murray

Director of Operations

Erich, a proud native of the Lowcountry, was born and raised on James Island, surrounded by the picturesque waterways of Charleston. His deep connection to the local environment sparked his passion for marine construction from an early age. In 1996, during his summer break, Erich began his education in this field by constructing docks, installing lifts, and operating heavy equipment. Throughout his high school years, he dedicated his summers to further honing his skills in marine construction.

Erich’s commitment to his craft continued as he pursued higher education. In 2007, he graduated from the College of Charleston with a degree in Business Administration. Armed with a combination of practical hands-on experience and academic business knowledge, he seamlessly integrated his skills into the operations of American Dock, becoming an invaluable asset to the company.

Having amassed almost three decades of experience on the waterfront, Erich has evolved into a licensed marine contractor and now holds the esteemed position of Director of Operations. His expertise and deep understanding of the industry make him an instrumental leader in all facets of American Dock’s operations. 

Michael Murray

PRESIDENT

American Dock & Marine was established by Michael Murray in 1990. Mike’s acquaintance with the water began on Wadmalaw Island in the early 1960’s with his family owned business of party fishing boats and shrimp boats. After serving in the military, he returned home to work again in the fishing industry and spent a long period of time as a commercial diver.

Judy Murray

With her newfound position as a permitting agent, Judy collaborates closely with local, state, and federal agencies to address all permitting and approval requirements. Additionally, she holds the esteemed title of a notary public in South Carolina, further contributing to her diverse skill set.
