Ray is thrilled to “rejoin” COM. Having received his MS in Public Relations from the college in 1983, he went on to spend more than 30 years in the agency business, most of that time at Ketchum where he served as CEO and then chairman for 16 years. Today the agency is one of the world’s largest and most awarded. Ray believes in service to the industry and has led or been a trustee of most every professional organization. He currently serves ex officio on the national board of directors of Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) where his work focuses on supporting young professionals. It is that passion that has brought Ray back to COM and its students. Ray is the recipient of the PRSA’s Gold Anvil and the Institute for Public Relations Alexander Hamilton Medal, those organizations’ highest honors for lifetime achievement. He recently was inducted into the Arthur W. Page Society Hall of Fame and is a distinguished alumnus of BU and COM.
