Mr Graham Paterson

Trustee and Member of the Audit and Investment Committee

I am a self-employed business consultant and I hold several appointments as a non-executive company director.

After qualifying as an accountant, I held posts in the business and public sector before joining the University of Glasgow administration in 1983. While there, I held a number of finance related posts including Deputy Director of Finance, before moving to commercialisation and business development roles as Corporate Development Director and Managing Director of GU Holdings Ltd.

This latter appointment included the commercialisation of technologies through the creation of spinout companies and the Identification and development of new commercial and business opportunities. As part of my Corporate Development role I created and established the University of Glasgow’s office base in North America.

I am pleased to offer my financial and business experience to the charity as a member of the Audit and Investment Committee and assist with the PhD Studentship scheme.
