Most recently, Graham worked as a Director within EY-Parthenon’s M&A strategy wing, specialising in the consumer sector. She previously also spent three years as an Associate Director in a similar practice at KPMG, and at Pragma Consulting.

L.E.K. Consulting’s London office was the firm’s first office to be established when the consultancy was founded in 1983. The office, currently led by Peter Ward, is one of the firm’s largest offices.

As technology continues to transform consumer behaviour, and the cost-of-living crisis sees many households scale back their spending, many retail, brand, travel, hospitality and media companies are turning to L.E.K. to evaluate their value propositions – and prioritise the right strategies required for future success. L.E.K.’s consumer practice helps clients weigh up a host of concerns, from promotional strategy to price pack architecture, and customer experience design.
