Beth Menard Gray

Vice President, Emerging Growth, West Region
Office Depot

Since 2004, Gray has served as a top executive at Office Depot, first as a managing director of the office supply retailer and, since 2017, as vice president of the Florida-based company’s Emerging Growth division. In her role, Gray has set her sights on businesses in the western United States with annual gross revenues of less than $1.1 billion, a wide net that has generated brisk business delivering office supplies to middle-market clients. All the while, Gray has shaped young minds as an adjunct professor at the Texas Woman’s University’s School of Management. “Beth is a quality person,” said Christopher Keeble, a security surveillance and IT manager at Danner’s Inc., who reported directly to Gray in a previous position. “Intelligent, loyal, dedicated and energetic, she was a pleasure to work for and with. You would be hard-pressed to find a better person to work with.”
