Murray Gray

Head of Commercial & Operations, Metabolic Ventures

Murray works at the intersection of entrepreneurship, innovation, and positive social and environmental impact. He acts as Head of Commercial and Operations for Metabolic’s Ventures division; working alongside Founding Partner Chris Monaghan. His work focuses on developing new ventures within the Metabolic ecosystem, and working with external organisations on their enterprise-focused innovation programs.

Murray started his career on the graduate scheme of Swiss banking giant UBS before making a career pivot into the entertainment industry; first helping to build a startup before founding his own talent management company. He ran the company for 4 years, working with the likes of Sony, Universal, Red Bull, and the BBC.

Looking for a higher sense of purpose, Murray transitioned to the world of sustainability and social impact. This led him to work both with mission-driven startups on their growth plans and with large organisations on their purpose-led sustainability strategies. After training as a B Leader in 2017, Murray became a key actor in the B Corporation movement across Europe.

Prior to his time at Metabolic, Murray was co-owner of Generous Minds, a B Corporation cooperative. Generous Minds solve societal issues in an entrepreneurial way by combining the forces of top experts, experienced entrepreneurs and financiers to create societal impact. Murray worked directly as an advisor to social enterprises, led the Generous Minds partnership efforts, and played a key role in the growth of the “Generous Money” impact financing function.
