Ray serves as a regional subject-matter specialist in wealth transfer strategies and fiduciary product solutions. He works with regional wealth advisory teams and wealth strategists to provide planning ideas to clients, prospects, and their advisers, and is a noted speaker on wealth planning and asset protection topics.

Ray began his career with Northern Trust in June 1980. He worked as tax counsel with special expertise in tax exempt organizations, fiduciary income tax, and estate/gift tax before leaving for private law practice in 1990.

Between 1994 and 2000, Ray was a vice president with NBD Bank (n/k/a JPMorgan Chase) where he was a trust officer and trust counsel.

In 2000, he rejoined Northern Trust and served in the dual capacity of trust administrator and wealth strategist, and was responsible for the administration of large, complex trusts for individuals and families. His duties often involved working with sophisticated estate plans, sensitive family situations, and complex property transfers.
