Member of the Board Development Committee, Grameen Foundation and Advisor, Technology Partner Network, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
One of the most technically astute people I have ever known.
William Duvall
We worked together  •  Executive VP and CTO, LoJack Corporation. Emory grad.
I was a co-founder of LoJack Corporation in 1985 based in Boston Massachusetts. I served in several roles over a 25 year term, some concurre ... ntly, including CTO, President of LoJack International, and Corporate Executive VP. I led a team that made the decision to award Mr. Murphy's company, Plextek LTD, the project to redesign LoJack's consumer product which included the complete design and selection of an off-shore manufacturer. This effort was led in large part by Mr. Murphy who developed a very successful design that saw more than 5 million units manufactured. I am quite impressed by Mr. Murphy's straightforward manner, his creativity, and ability to manage very complex technical issues. His personal integrity and character are without question. He has a very firm grasp on business fundamentals and very broad knowledge in a variety of disciplines. I am able to unreservedly recommend Mr. Murphy.
