Kevin Murphy
Senior Electrical Engineer

Kevin knew he wanted to be an electrical engineer when he fixed his first remote-controlled truck at age eight.

It could be a holdover from the sting of that broken truck or maybe it’s his years working in the medical device industry, but he considers reliability to be every product’s legacy. “In the long run, nobody remembers the pains it took to create a product,” he says, “but users appreciate if it works every time.”

At Bresslergroup, Kevin is responsible for electronic hardware and firmware design. He helps clients decide which state-of-the-art features they should consider and then he focuses on making that a reality. The most enjoyable moment of the process is when he first sees a complex design behave the way he has envisioned it.

Kevin earned a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University and an M. Eng. in Electrical Engineering from Princeton. Before coming to Bresslergroup he worked primarily in the medical device industry with an early-career stint in consumer electronics. Outside of work he roots for the 76ers, hangs out with his two young kids, and often finds himself fixing their broken toys. (Some things never change.)
