Kelly Murphy is the Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Gridstore Inc. since April 2013. In 2009, Murphy founded Gridstore - a pioneer of software-defined storage that is set to disrupt the traditional storage industry. Currently, Kelly serves on Gridstore’s Board of Directors and is also the Chief Technology Officer. As a serial entrepreneur with a track record of bringing disruptive technologies to market, Kelly brings 15 years CEO experience with disruptive venture backed software companies.

In 1998, almost a decade before the cloud became popular, Murphy founded Marrakech, the first software company that offered on-demand procurement and supply chain systems to over 30,000 trading partners including some of the world’s largest retailers, consumer food producers, packaging companies and utilities. After selling Marrakech in 2007, he turned his sights onto what was his largest obstacle in growing his previous business — storage.

Originally from Canada, Murphy obtained his B.S. in Computer Science from Michigan Technological University, played Division I hockey and was the seventh pick of the New York Islanders in the 1984 entry draft.
