After service in the Royal Navy, Graham was recruited by JP Morgan, London, where he worked on a range of global projects. Initially being involved in developing the bank’s technology base and facilities, subsequently he led a number of global projects that consolidated the bank’s business services and supporting technologies. Finally he moved on to be responsible for the defining, developing, implementing, and marketing product and services for Corporate Treasurers and Fund Managers. As part of his work he transferred, via New York, to Paris.
Graham also completed the first fully part time MBA offered in England, by the City University Business School (now called CAAS), in Banking and Finance during this period. With the take-over of JP Morgan by Chase bank in 2001, Graham left the bank and started freelance consulting and teaching finance oriented MBA courses. He served for a period as the interim COO of a high tech start up in Geneva and on returning to Paris he developed, designed, delivered and ran an Entrepreneurship based Incubator and Masters programme for the American Business School, Paris.
In parallel he developed a number of courses for visiting and exchange students explaining the functioning of the European Union, particularly its financial markets, and the cultural challenges of working within it. He also served for a period as Chairman of the Board of governors of an NGO assisting micro and mini businesses in Africa whilst he restructured the board and operations. He continues as a volunteer.
