Graham has an extensive banking background, working for over 15 years in a large multi-national bank across multiple jurisdictions. His roles have placed him at the centre of change activity, particularly where change impacted data and the delivery of management information (MI). Graham had responsibility for the MI provision in support of transformation and business change across a bank that operated in six jurisdictions across four customer brands.
Areas of responsibility included creation of data solutions to support the opening of new jurisdictions, as well as large scale remediation, regulatory change and data migration activity.
Graham has held leadership positions in both regulated and unregulated environments across retail banking, private banking, markets, corporate and most recently data and analytics. He has developed new banking roles and departments, leading the design and implementation of technical and operational change at a macro and micro level.
With in-depth knowledge of the financial services environment in customer facing and operational aspects of the industry, Graham has had a varied change background and has used this to great effect managing and implementing initiatives that helped the bank meet its objectives.
Strong stakeholder engagement and management have been consistent features of Graham's career, in addition to significant leadership responsibility across financial markets.

Favourite Place in the world
I love the South Island of New Zealand, in particular Fox Glacier. I hiked on it and you could actually hear it moving down the mountain. The Glacier is next to a Rainforest and is the only place in the world like this. It is simply stunning!
What is number one on your bucket list?
Climbing Everest – though my wife will never let me. Plus, I am getting on a bit now and I am not as fit as I used to be!
If you could invite any three people to dinner, past or present, who would they be and why?
Jeremy Clarkson, because he does not take himself too seriously, and his views on life do make me laugh.
Tim Peaks as I have always had a fascination with space and as Britain's most famous Astronaut he would be a great guest. And the man has travelled in a rocket at 17,500mph – how cool is that!
David Attenborough for Blue Planet and everything else he has seen and done.
"This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is a memory that you have left behind...let it be something great."
If you could travel back and witness any historical event, what would it be and why?
I would love to travel back and see a Titanosaur. Based upon the huge thigh bones that have been found, it was 40m (130ft) long and 20m (65ft) tall. Weighing in at 77 tonnes, it was as heavy as 14 African elephants. The sheer size of this dinosaur must have been a sight. It was also a herbivore and so no chance of getting eaten!
Favourite restaurant in the Channel Islands?
Royal Yacht Grill Bar. They do a great steak and the accompanying bottle of Malbec always makes for a great meal.
