Spotlight On Centurions – Ryan Gray

Through his childhood and early adult life, Ryan Gray was constantly a man on the move. He estimates that he has moved around the country 20 times. Education? Northwest Missouri State for his bachelor’s degree, the University of Florida for his master’s degree and additional study in marketing and economics at Zuyd University in the Netherlands. Following stints with Chrysler Financial and Darden Restaurants (and moves to Dallas, Texas, and Orlando, Florida), a desire to be closer to family brought the Grays back to Our Town. Ryan and his wife, Mandy, have two sons, Knox and Briggs. Ryan is the president of Impact KC and serves on the board of directors of the Children’s Mercy Cancer Center auxiliary. As a member of the Centurions Spring Class of 2020, he serves on the steering committee.

                                    Briggs Gray, Ryan Gray, Knox Gray, and Mandy Gray flanked Mickey Mouse.
