The trio have risen through the ranks at Pitcher Partners and were promoted this month.
As a corporate finance partner, Mr Murphy will look to work closely with business owners and investors to assess the value of businesses and shares, intangible assets and employee equity instruments.
Mr Lapthornem, who has been with the firm for over 16 years, will now be a partner at the firm’s business advisory and assurance division.
Ms Tang, who specialises in tax advisory, has joined the Melbourne partnership after 14 years at the firm.
Pitcher Partners national association chair John Brazzale said the appointments highlight the importance of ensuring new leaders are championed at a time when client care and support is needed the most.

“As businesses navigate challenges and opportunities, it is humbling to know that Pitcher Partners is committed to making business personal for the many business owners who make up the engine room of Australia’s economy.”
