We would like to announce the retirement of ADD Systems’ long-time Director of Implementation and Training, Kealin Murphy. While we wish her the best, we will greatly miss her strong leadership and her cheerful and calm personality.
Kealin entered the industry in 1982 when she joined STS in the accounting department in Montreal, Canada. With her financial background, this was a great fit, but when a trainer position opened up, she jumped at the opportunity. She learned from the ground up by partnering with senior trainers and working at customer sites, doing everything from performing the day-to-day work that customers did to jumping on oil and propane trucks to ride along for deliveries.
In 1997, Kealin became a member of the ADD team with its acquisition of the Petroleum Division of STS. She fondly remembers Bruce A. and Gale Bott’s initial visit to the Montreal office and their warm welcome to the new team members. It set the stage for a successful and exciting transition for Kealin. She initially worked in the Montreal office and then made the move to the United States in 2000. After spending 21 years in the US, she moved back to Canada last year.
Kealin has been a tremendous asset to the ADD team. Her knowledge of the industry, her relationships with customers and her vast experience will be greatly missed. Over the last two decades, Kealin has led the Implementation and Training team through the successful implementation of dozens of new customers, hundreds of upgrades and thousands of training sessions. She has built strong relationships with her co-workers, peers and ADD customers.
Implementation Specialist, Linda Batt, shared, “A general principle of being a good manager is to develop your staff to learn, grow, expand to other opportunities, and ultimately succeed in their own career path. Kealin did this for me EVERY DAY!”
Rob Culbertson, Senior VP & COO, shared, “We wish Kealin the best in her well-deserved retirement, and we thank her for all of her contributions to ADD. She is leaving our Implementation and Training department in great shape and in a trajectory to continue completing successful and thorough implementations.”
Thank you, Kealin, for 40 years of dedication to the industry and outstanding contributions at ADD. We wish you the absolute best!
