General Tim Ray, USAF (Ret.) is a highly decorated, retired United States Air Force Four-Star General officer who most recently served as Commander of Air Force Global Strike Command. Concurrently, he served as the Commander of Air Forces Strategic-Air, United States Strategic Command, focusing on strategy and operational excellence. He served as a member of the Air Force’s “Corporate Board” team of senior leaders, shaping future force structure, modernization, and budget priorities for the United States Air Force. General Ray is widely recognized for developing, fielding, operating, and sustaining security capabilities as a result of his vast experience and insights across multiple disciplines: technology development and acquisition, joint and combined military operations from the tactical to the strategic, executive leadership, civil-military relationships, and international security.

He directed modernization efforts for command and control, aircraft, intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM), infrastructure, and support equipment. His leadership and vision were instrumental to the organization’s thriving and improvement of its no-fail mission during the COVID pandemic and shift to strategic competition with near-peer adversaries.
