Leah Murphy is the Founder and CEO of both GET Payroll Solutions, a payroll consulting and processing company and North Star Payroll, a payroll software solutions company.
In 2017, with a desire for a change and almost 20 years of experience, Leah started her first company as a payroll consultant for local businesses in NL. This was when the idea for an innovative payroll processing software began. There were plenty of payroll software programs on the market but nothing that was exactly right.
Leah is a firm believer in “if you don’t do it, then who will?” and this was the beginning of North Star Payroll. Leah had not anticipated being the founder of a tech startup but knew she had the practical expertise, if not the coding knowledge. After some trial and error, idea validation, and with the acceptance into the Genesis Enterprise program, Leah found herself identifying as a “Woman in Technology.”
Leah holds a Certified Payroll Management certification, is a volunteer with the St. John’s branch of the Canadian Payroll Association and is a board member with the community organization Thrive.
