KEY PERSONNEL

Consider our deep expertise an extension of your team.
 

GRAHAM SMITH

VP: Business Development

Graham is a recognized thought leader in the renewable energy sector, embodying the philosophy of playing where the puck is going to be. He successfully brings old-school values to a rapidly evolving industry, believing in relationships, dialogue and the trust that comes with never taking shortcuts. “My defining moment was while running a 90km Ultra-Marathon at 23 and being overtaken by Wally Hayward at 81. What we do is not a sprint—stopping to redo things kills momentum, so do it right the first time."

Having smartened up and stopped these crazy runs, he loves to travel with Sandie and their kids and is also a good ringer for a golf match.
