Graham is a 4-time CEO for private equity / venture capital companies with successful exits; he is a citizen of the US, UK and Republic of Ireland. Graham really enjoy building things – especially bringing innovative products to market, inspiring cohesive, agile teams, and transforming organizational cultures as a servant-leader.

Graham is especially passionate about solving some of the significant challenges in healthcare: he partnered with an AI solution to identify and extract contract terms from unstructured data libraries at MediTract, and used this to build integrated use cases that optimized supply chains for clinical outcomes. He helped create an integrated prospective analytics dashboard at HealthWyse to transform the traditional fee-for-service delivery of care into the new patient-centric value-based care model, with reduced reimbursement for care delivery in low-cost settings for patients in their homes. Graham also partnered with IDEO to redesign hospital scheduling software into a real-time staffing solution that embedded best clinical practices to improve patient outcomes, reduced costs and delivered excellent staff engagement and satisfaction.

He has led several emerging private equity/venture capital-funded companies through successful exits, directed sales and product teams in growth enterprises to $100M+ revenues, and participated in a $600M IPO. He understands customers and how to scale ventures, and has sold and marketed at every level.

Graham has also had the privilege of serving on a number of Boards (including as a founder of the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Santa Clara University), advising multiple organizations and completing projects in six countries – while continuing to compete nationally in his chosen sport (rowing) and pursue all of his outdoor passions with his family.

He has has a BSc. (Eng) from Imperial College and an MBA from Santa Clara University and is a former Fellow at the American College of Healthcare Executives.
