Kim Morrison, CEO and Founder

Kim Morrison

Founder and CEO

I created Grok to build a best-in-class company that helps universities around the world to do a better job of recruiting students and building partnerships. As an entrepreneur, I am driven to build a company that not only deeply serves clients but that provides meaningful professional experiences for young people.

My proudest achievement is Grok’s many satisfied clients, and I’m equally proud that Grok is a great employer in markets where such are often in short supply. Everyone at Grok is dedicated to making the company better year after year, and while we’re devoted to our current clients, we are also excited to grow and to welcome new partners to the Grok family.

SUCCESS STORIES
