Armed with impeccable organization and logic, Graham could have embarked on a number of career paths. He switched tracks from engineering to finance halfway through his time at NC State University — attracted to the opportunities for strategic and creative thinking on the business side.
In its early days, Parata was Graham’s client. He was advising Parata as a public accountant, and he couldn’t resist the opportunity to make a real business impact at the energetic, fast-growing startup. In 2004, Graham officially joined the Parata team.
Ever since, Graham has focused on creating operational efficiency, building a trusted team, making big decisions, and driving Parata’s financial success. He became vice president of finance and operations in 2014.
