Murdoch has degrees from Harvard, Tufts, and UNC. But the hiring of Chris Murdoch as a special advisor marks the first state resident hired by the company. Murdoch brings an unusual background to the job as a Navy pilot who until last month ran the Naval ROTC program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Foxconn confirmed the hire in a statement late Monday night.
"The recruitment of retired Navy Captain Chris Murdoch as senior advisor, and the strategic and administrative experience and strong links to Wisconsin he brings to Foxconn, will be of immense value to the success of our operation," the statement reads.
