Here comes Bill Gray
So Ogilvy major executive Bill Gray is introducing ESPN's George Bodenheimer. Here's my first recollection of Bill Gray: it's about 1983. I'm a PR assistant (OK, glorified secretary) at Ogilvy & Mather back at 2 E. 48th Street waiting for the elevator next to Bill Gray, who is about 15 levels above me in the agency heirarchy. Gray is pacing, pacing, pacing in front of the elevator with an intensity I've never seen before or since. Obviously, it got him somewhere. Have wondered, more than once, if he still paces like that.
