The former CEO of Gray Construction, an international construction firm, Jim Gray brought his executive's approach to the Mayor’s Office in 2011. He came into office with three priorities: Create Jobs, Run Government Efficiently and Build a Great American City.
In 2½ years, he has ended structural deficits, reduced multi-million-dollar subsidies in employee insurance, and put the city’s pension on a sustainable path, a reform that has become a national model.
Currently, Gray is working to reactivate Lexington’s urban core. Internationally recognized designers are building an arts and entertainment district around legendary Rupp Arena; and resurrecting the Town Branch, the buried water source around which Lexington was founded in 1775. Together, the projects create a fabric of parks and public space through the heart of Lexington's downtown.
Gray is a graduate of Vanderbilt University and in 1996 was appointed a Loeb Fellow at Harvard University.
