Graham Smith

Non Executive Director and Interim Head of Development finance

While graduating in law, Graham won funding for nationwide launch within 10 months of starting test-marketing an enterprise. At just 22, instead of accepting the investments, he trained with pwc audit and recovery.

After profound professional development at pwc, Graham re-invested in SMEs. These included: directing finance & business development for a property development and maintenance company; various projects for an air-sealing specialist, ranging from arbitration, to site cost control and invoicing, to international market access. Quickly he became the Global Head of Finance and Legal for the SME portfolio of a serial entrepreneur.

Since then Graham has supported enterprises backed by investments from plc, PE, VC, and Crowdfunding. Those enterprises were active in materials testing, property management and development, logistics and storage, and e-learning.

Currently, Graham is a Senior Consultant for AccLaw, the accounting and legal risk managers, and interim CEO of an international development foundation that uses football to empower teachers in the transformation of young lives.
