The Leadership Team
When Mike joined Connect Source in 2016, he brought vast telecommunications, telematics and software management experience into the business.
With dual roles as CEO and Director, he’s also focused on our sales strategy and our unique Development Journey framework.
When businesses need help with a problem, Mike helps them find a workable solution.
He appreciates working with a team of people who are determined to make things happen for our customers. It’s a great match for his natural ‘get it done’ attitude.
When Mike’s not at work, you’ll find him developing his expertise on the golf course or doing a spot of travelling with his family.
Before joining Connect Source, Murray built a career working in electrical industrial controls in various industries, with a specific production focus.
In 2006, as his father-in-law, Spencer, considered retirement, he invited Murray to join his auto electrical manufacturing business – Connect Source. They worked together until Spencer retired in 2010. Murray then bought and began managing the business.
In 2016, he invited Mike Wishart to join the team. After a successful year together, they became equal shareholders and Mike took on the role of Managing Director.
Murray is now less active in the day-to-day running of Connect Source. He retired from an executive role in July 2019 to spend more time with his family and pursue an interest in farming.
