Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation Welcomes Comoto Family of Brands CEO to Board of Directors

The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation Board of Directors has elected its newest member in the battle against the most common and fatal of children’s cancers – brain tumors.  
 
Ken Murphy, CEO of the Comoto Family of Brands, joins in PBTF’s fight for kids with brain cancer, uniting in the nonprofit leader’s pledge to transform care, discover a cure and help impacted families thrive. Since 2019, Murphy has led the Comoto family of moto enthusiast retail brands, which include RevZilla, Cycle Gear, J&P Cycles and most recently REVER, the world’s largest motorcycle GPS app and community, and a multi-year national partner of PBTF’s Ride for Kids.    
 
“We’re excited to welcome Ken Murphy to our team,” said Courtney Davies, PBTF’s president and CEO. “Our board is committed to furthering the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s work driving breakthrough childhood brain tumor research through funding and collaboration, while providing support and compassion to families navigating this devastating disease. Ken’s extensive retail experience and commitment to the brain tumor community will be valuable assets as we accelerate our strategic plan to continue to lead the charge against the deadliest form of childhood cancer.”  
 
Prior to leading Comoto, Murphy was president and CEO of EbLens, a footwear, apparel and accessories lifestyle retailer. His background also includes a successful 20-year career in the home furnishings industry, where he held various leadership roles for the multi-billion-dollar bedding specialty retailer Mattress Firm, including ultimately serving as president and CEO.  
 
“Having lost my mother to brain cancer in the late 90s, and as a proud father of five myself, I am deeply committed to helping other families affected by this disease,” Murphy said. “I am grateful for this opportunity to bring my personal and professional experience to PBTF. Learning about the motorcycling community’s long history of support for this cause continues to inspire me. I’m excited to get on my bike and participate in this year’s inaugural National Ride for Kids Day, and I invite everyone to join me.”
