She began her technology career designing and building many of the best-selling computer security and system utilities with 5th Generation Systems, Quarterdeck and the Norton Group. Ms. Murphy has more than 30 U.S. patents issued, with several more pending.

“As GF redefines innovation in semiconductor manufacturing, we need experienced technology leaders with the foresight and vision to guide our growth strategy,” said Tom Caulfield, CEO at GF.

Tom adds, “Elissa is an accomplished engineer and Silicon Valley executive, with a proven record of leading teams that push the boundaries of technology. Her appointment will help us further position the company as an innovative manufacturer with a broad portfolio of feature-rich solutions.”
