Julie Murray

With 18 years experience gained through a variety of pharmaceutical businesses from small sized to large corporate models, Julie has trained as a Responsible Person in Good Distribution Practice and has experience with MHRA inspections and third party audits. 

Personal Message:

“Hi, I'm Julie one of the founders of EliteExecs Ltd.  Running my own business was never on my bucket list, come to think of it neither was having children, but look how that worked out for me. I am a mother of two, one daughter who works in business administration and one son in secondary school. Due to a restructure in my previous employed role I found myself wondering what to do next and here I am with my own virtual support company, and I love it.  Believe it or not I also have some spare time which is filled with playing field hockey, walking our rescue dog (named Monel) and running.”

Personal message:

“Hi, I am Karen also one of the founders of EliteExecs Ltd. 

EliteExecs Ltd. was born from an idea Julie and I thought about and started to plan back in 2015. However, both of us were still in fulltime employment so decided to wait until we could give our company 100%. Following a company restructure my contract ended in 2017 after 10+ years at which point I decided to take time out and planned a few road trips around Europe with my husband. We have family commitments in both the UK and Tunisia and decided to reside in both countries throughout this time. Julie’s employment status changed so we then put our plans into action and launched EliteExecs earlier in 2020. Some months later we are both still very excited and are enjoying building our company.

I have been married for 39 years and I have four children, two daughters, two sons aged between 34 and 23. I also have and 3 grandchildren. Organisation and dealing with conflict have become something I excel in!  In my spare time I love to travel, swim, read and most importantly spend time with and support my family.”
