Graham is Head of Research at the TDI, where he specialises in advising ‘mid-stream’ companies such as manufacturers, refiners and suppliers of retail goods on responsible sourcing, risk and due diligence processes.
Recently, Graham has led the development of a supply chain risk analysis for the steel industry, examining over 40 different inputs into steel making, and he is currently managing projects developing resources for the OECD supply chain due diligence process, and developing a series of papers on sourcing issues in the coloured gemstone sector for a group of major industry players. He has developed TDI’s flagship country, company and material profiles, which have been distributed to hundreds of small and medium sized enterprises and large multi-nationals.
Graham has extensive field experience, having lived and worked in East Africa, Central Asia and Eastern Europe for many years. His unique professional background includes time spent with the resource governance NGO Global Witness, education in conflict and international affairs as a British Army officer, and a master’s degree in pure mathematics from Cambridge University. This diversity of education and life experience underpins Graham’s approach to problem solving on projects – assessing the unique qualities of each client’s situation and developing solutions that are not constrained by over-adherence to one discipline or another.
