Nevada Donor Network (NDN) announced today, Tyre Gray, Esq. has joined the organization as chief administrative officer.
As NDN’s chief administrative officer, Gray will join the Senior Leadership Team and oversee and manage the organization’s administrative operations, while supporting the organization’s mission to lead the advancement of healthcare in Nevada and assist with its longstanding goal of creating a full-scale transplant institute to expand the state’s current transplant capabilities and ultimately save more lives through the gift of organ, eye, and tissue donation.
“As a kidney transplant recipient, I cannot think of a more meaningful way to honor the gift of life provided to me by the donor and their family than by dedicating my time, talent, and passion to NDN,” said Gray. In his mid-20’s, Gray discovered he was living with chronic kidney disease and was placed on the transplant waiting list. As his health began to fail, Gray made the choice to persevere and pursued a law degree at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ Boyd School of Law. Almost a decade after diagnosis, Gray received his gift of life, a kidney transplant. While in recovery, Gray went on to graduate near the top of his class, pass the bar in three states, and join a top regional law firm.
“Needless to say, we are elated to be able to recruit someone of his character, caliber, and talent to join our high performing team. His experience speaks for itself and will add great value to NDN’s efforts and our mission,” said NDN CEO Joe Ferreira. Prior to joining Nevada Donor Network, Gray applied his over two decades of experience in leadership roles in the hospitality and consulting industries, along with his extensive experience representing Fortune 5-100 clients as an attorney before federal and state legislatures and courts as the president of the Nevada Mining Association.
