PrePass Safety Alliance recently announced that Chris Murray has been named president of PrePass LLC. Most recently, Murray served as president and chief executive officer of Kapsch TrafficCom North America (Kapsch). During his time with Kapsch, the organization expanded its offerings to include end-to-end connected mobility systems, software, and services to the broader Intelligent Transportation technology marketplaces such as Electronic Toll Collection, Urban and Highway Traffic Management, Commercial Vehicle Systems and Connected Vehicle (V2X) solutions.
Murray joined Kapsch as part of the acquisition of Mark IV IVHS, a designer and manufacturer of RFID systems and components used to enable Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) systems, commercial vehicle operations, and traffic management systems, where he was president. Prior to Mark IV, Murray held several executive positions at CHEP, a $4.0B+ global logistics services company. Murray got his start in the transportation industry with Ryder Logistics and Bridgestone Corporation, including three years in Tokyo, Japan, in several operations, marketing, and strategy roles.
PrePass Safety Alliance acquired the technology firm that Murray will lead in June 2022. Since its inception 30 years ago, the connected vehicle organization acted as the primary vendor for the Alliance and has been held by a succession of commercial giants, including Lockheed Martin, Xerox, and Conduent. In 2018, it was spun off as a stand-alone company named CVO, which has been rebranded as PrePass.
