This was followed by a move into technology sales working in the ERP and CRM markets selling enterprise-wide solutions covering accounting, distribution, manufacturing and sales into large organisations. The role covered the UK market as well as Europe, the United States and Sub-Saharan Africa. After this Murray worked for 10 years at one of the UK’s leading credit reference agencies covering consumer and commercial credit, fraud and ID sales into some of the country’s largest financial institutions.
