Over 20 years ago, Ray got his start in medical sales and marketing. Since then, he has helped lead the marketing and development teams of such companies as DIANON Systems, Boston Scientific, Hill-Rom, Meridian Bioscience, and Poplar Healthcare. Ray also took the time to help his father rebrand and reconfigure his printing business…three years that he wouldn’t trade for the world. He is a graduate of Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and also studied at the University of Copenhagen in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Ray is one of the founders of BrightView and is responsible for marketing, public relations, funding, and anything else that generally involves a lunch meeting.
