Chairman and CFO
Dan Judge founded NetPlus Alliance in 2002 to fill a need for a buying group whose simple mission is mutual growth for its partners. He has since handed the reins to his daughter, Jennifer Murphy, the fifth generation to guide the organization. As NetPlus has evolved, Dan has enjoyed watching the organization grow at a faster pace than the industry year after year.
Dan started in the industrial distribution business at Ward Brothers as an operations manager after earning an industrial distribution degree from Clarkson University and spending a few years in the Army and Vietnam. He was a founding member and president of I.D. One, the first purchasing cooperative for industrial distributors, from 1993 to 2000.
A husband, father and grandfather, Dan likes to golf, read and attend his six grandchildren’s events.
Favorite NetPlus Core Value:
“Be honest and genuine. That’s always been the way I’ve lived, and it’s a hallmark of our group.”
