Graham joined the board of Shift in 2017 and brings with him a mix of creative communications flair and commercial and entrepreneurial nous.
During the dotcom fever of the late nineties he set up another.com, a free web-based email service. He has spent the last two decades setting up and running the multi award winning PR agency Frank, with offices in Sydney, Manchester, New York and Glasgow in addition to its Camden Town HQ. Graham managed the sale of the business in 2007 to the Photon Group, now re-named Enero, and now remains the Chairman of Frank and the largest individual shareholder in the company.
He combines this with an assortment of other roles. He is a Board Advisor to Green Square, a corporate finance boutique in the media sector, where he works in an advisory capacity on M&A activity. He is also the Chairman of Noise Media Group, a social publishing company with the largest community of students in the UK. In addition, he is on the Board of Camden Town Unlimited, a business improvement district that initiates and delivers projects which improve the viability, visibility and commercial performance of Camden Town as a business location. He is also the world’s first (and only) Dutch Uncle, a new type of business advisor who offers frank and straight-to-the-point advice to educate, encourage, challenge and inspire CEOs and business leaders.
When not working Graham is a loyal Gooner and keen golfer. A little known fact is that he has also appeared on Baywatch alongside David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson et al.
