For over 25 years Gray has been a leader or a member of teams that have either created or transformed some of the world’s most iconic brands across both the B2B and B2C sector.
In that time his experience and interest has been focused on the evolution and future-proofing of professional service brands.
For 14 years he led the global business strategy, brand and marketing initiatives at Boyden World Corporation as Chief Marketing & Strategy Officer, working across disciplines and critically reviving a storied brand in the executive search sector whilst supporting nearly 800 partners, researchers, and other staff with team building, business process implementation, and growing local group and global revenues.
Gray understands the nuances of leadership development and talent management across borders and how to manage crisis and future-proof business that enable growth success and succession in professional services and executive search specifically.
His career in cultural anthropology transitioned to exhibition design and management where he developed conceptual plans for national museums across the globe. This work eventually led him to consult with companies in defining and evolving corporate culture, particularly after M&A events.
He loves immersing himself in a company and their products and services, articulating the unique culture and proposition each offers in a visually and verbally interesting way.
He is excited about working with ALC Enable in offering sorely needed services to many search firms that need to define and develop clear business and marketing objectives: sharpen their focus in business operations, client solutions, brand strategy, marketing, and, importantly, succession.
Currently residing in New York, he is an avid ice hockey and lacrosse player, fiction writer, and is also a sailor and racer.
