With 20 years of experience, Graeme has worked right across the public and private spectrum, with roles in national government; as a diplomat representing a national government in Brussels; in the European Commission; Director of Public Affairs for a Brussels-based industry association; and, latterly as the global head of media relations and public affairs for a major multinational company.

Awarded “European Public Affairs Professional of the Year” in 2018, Graeme has a unique insight into the workings of EU, national and global decision making, and the imperatives that drive and impact business, and relishes putting that experience to work – together with his passion and energy for food and agriculture issues - to deliver the best outcomes for our clients.
