Ray is a senior adviser on communications and reputation to some of the most senior business leaders in the country.

Through almost three decades, Ray has advised Chairmen and CEOs of publicly quoted companies, leaders of political parties, senior executives of national institutions, representative bodies and State Agencies. He has particular expertise in communications for the financial services industry and with managing high-profile news events, disputes and crisis situations.

Ray's career in media relations began in politics. In his early 20s he was a spokesman for the Progressive Democrats and he worked with the party in both Opposition and Government through a tumultuous period in the late 80s and early 90s.

In his 30s Gordon spent three years as Head of Media Relations with Irish Life plc – the largest Life and Pensions company in Ireland before establishing himself as an independent consultant. Over the next decade he led his business through a number of significant mergers to a point where it became one of the largest PR consultancies in Ireland, employing 24 people.

Ray resigned as a shareholder and Managing Director of that firm in 2009 to set up Gordon MRM as a specialist boutique consultancy. All the clients he represented at that time joined him in Gordon MRM as did a number of key staff.
