Mr Gray holds university degrees in Economics and Law and is a partner in the Christchurch law firm of Meares Williams. He was previously the chairman of the Canterbury/West Coast Division of the Society and is actively involved with the Pacific Leprosy Foundation, the Rotary Club of Christchurch and other charitable organisations.
