Who is the guy in the green jacket?

General Convention watchers are wondering: Who was the guy in the loud green jacket and bow tie who introduced Bishop Katharine and Bonnie Anderson yesterday? He is none other than The Rev. Dr. Gregory S. Straub, executive officer and secretary of General Convention. Here is his job description:
The Executive Officer is appointed by the Presiding Bishop and the President of the House of Deputies. As Executive Officer he/she oversees all aspects of the work of Church governance, from site selection through supervision and funding of the work mandated by the convention. The Executive Officer may also be elected to serve as the Secretary of the House of Deputies and, if elected by both houses of General Convention, Secretary of the General Convention.
