Ray can advise on different strategic issues and has a keen grasp on the risks that may face scalable ventures. He can apply critical reason ... ing and logic to a situation in a way that most people cannot.

I have had the great pleasure of getting to know Ray very well and have had the chance to work alongside him in a business capacity. What I ... like the most about Ray is his ability to keep an open mind and his level of intellect. These two attributes combined make him a great advisor because he is not someone who is boxed into a niche category and also has a generalist knowledge of business that allows him to provide perspective on a myriad of topics. The individuals that have the opportunity to be advised by Ray should consider themselves very lucky!
