Graham's major roles have included supply management; international purchasing, logistics and contract administration; warehousing and inventory control; and the recruitment of supply staff and contract specialists.
Starting his career in 1968 as a commercial trainee with BHP, he became Purchasing and Employment Officer in their Adelaide office in 1974. He was responsible for the procurement of equipment and labour for the Whyalla Steelworks & Shipyard, Rapid Bay & Ardrossan quarries, and the recruitment of labour for their Groote Eylandt Mining Company in the Northern Territory. Graham joined Conzinc Riotinto of Australia (CRA - now the global mining giant Rio Tinto) in 1977, as a Purchasing Officer and Inventory Controller with their Hamersley Iron project in WA. He transferred to CRA’s Bougainville Copper operation in PNG in 1981, rising to become Superintendent of Purchasing and Contracts for the world’s second largest copper mine. He joined Western Mining Corporation’s Olympic Dam Project in 1989 and transferred to the WMC nickel operations in WA as Supply Superintendent, before starting his own company (now ProcureNet) in 1994.
Graham has been a member of the Institute of Purchasing and Supply Management since 1974, becoming an Associate Fellow when it changed to the Australian Institute of Purchasing and Materials Management, and is an Associate Member of the inaugural Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply in Australia. He has certificates in commerce and industrial studies and a Diploma in Supply Management, and continues to keep up-to-date with the latest technology in the fields of IT, HR and Supply to provide support to staff.
