Meet the founders.


Todd Butka

Murj Founder and CEO, Todd Butka, supported clinics as a Medtronic cardiac device representative. He saw clinicians struggling to check devices with old and inadequate tools that took too much time and effort. Todd observed them flipping between multiple websites, paper charts, and EHR records without really knowing if they had everything they needed.

Having worked in product management at Apple, Todd knew that well-designed technology had the potential to transform the industry. Murj was created with the belief that software can solve device clinic challenges without requiring additional staff.


Reed Gaither

Reed Gaither, JD, MBA is Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer at Murj. He is responsible for ensuring the operational excellence of Murj business processes and practices, and overseeing the company’s business innovation office and business technology organizations. Reed has over 15 years experience in executive management of sales, marketing, governance, and venture investing of software and healthcare companies.
When it was time to take Murj from dream to reality, Todd knew Reed had the expertise and leadership to help build operations from the ground up.
