Peter Graham founded Graham Thompson in 1950, and has played a leading role in steering its growth for over 70 years. He serves as a valued advisor in the long-term planning and strategic development of the Firm, and his commitment to excellence and to the importance of public service continue to under pin the core values of the firm.

In 1997, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, appointed Peter Graham as CMG, the Companion of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George.  The CMG honours individuals who render extraordinary or important non-military service.
