Bob Gray
In Memoriam

In 2020 we lost a great friend and valued colleague.  Bob was a wealth of knowledge and shared so many insights over the years for hundreds of business leaders throughout his career.  He will surely be missed.

Over the last 48 years I have served in several positions from entry level to middle management to CEO in the corporate world. Along with the management positions in the corporate world I have also served in several positions in non-profit organizations. Over the years I have learned how to deal with both paid and volunteer positions. I bring a vast amount of experience to the table as a Speaker/Trainer/Coach to current and future leaders. I am a certified member of the John Maxwell Team and I’m also certified as a DISC consultant in the area of personality indicators.

Along with my accomplishments in the corporate world I have also learned how to overcome major obstacles in my personal life. In October of 2015 I became ill and in December of 2015 I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and underwent a “Whipple” procedure and several months of chemo and radiation treatments. I believe I am still here to share my knowledge with both the current and future leaders and train them to reach their goals despite any obstacles that may come their way.
