Gov. Phil Murphy and his family will depart on a personal trip to Germany later this afternoon and will return to New Jersey on Sunday.

Lt. Sheila Oliver will serve as Acting Governor during Murphy’s absence.

Murphy served as U.S. Ambassador to Germany from 2009 to 2013, during the administration of President Barack Obama.

He also lived in Frankfurt for a couple of years when he was working for Goldman Sachs.  He headed the German Region for the investment bank from 1993 to 1997.

He still owns a home in Berlin.

The governor was in Germany in October, where he spent four days on the first leg of an international trade mission that that included five days in Israel.

While on that trip, Murphy announced that EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG, a $25 billion German wind energy company, would open an office in Jersey City.
