Vice President & Director | Healthcare Operations
From the baseball field to the healthcare field, Ray is often considered the “Most Valuable Player.” After playing baseball for North Carolina State University, Ray graduated with a degree in civil engineering and made his way to the Chicago area. As vice president of healthcare operations, Ray fosters the same sense of teamwork, purpose and connectivity he did on the diamond with those involved with his projects.
A Professional Engineer licensed in Illinois, creating productive and enduring relationships are among Ray’s greatest strengths. Growing up as one of eight children, Ray has an uncanny ability to establish credibility amongst his peers and industry partners, create solutions to tough challenges and find value in the feedback and perspectives of others.
Generous with his time, Ray has coordinated B&A’s annual holiday gift drive for Comer Children’s Hospital for nearly 25 years. Outside of B&A, he has applied his talents to the Chicagoland Associated General Contractors (CAGC) where he served on the board from 2010 to 2015. He is currently a member of the Associated General Contractors’ (AGC) National Construction Lean Forum Steering Committee where he focuses on the implementation of Lean practices. He also is a member of Northwestern Medicine’s Golf Invitational fundraising committee and volunteers on his parish’s finance committee.
When he’s not in the office, Ray can be found sharing stories about his sons and spending time with family and friends in the great outdoors, fishing, golfing and gardening.
