He has worked for SSE for three years, having previously worked for ABB in Dundee for thirty years before they closed their Dundee operation.
Graeme’s position within SSE means he has also become involved with Barnado's works scheme as a mentor, which, as he willingly admits “opened my eyes to the problems our younger generation encounter”.
Graeme has also kindly provided the following précis of his football interests:
"I joined Broughty Athletic's committee when my brother became manager of the team and remained on the committee for about seven years. I have been Vice-President of Broughty Athletic for the past three years.
"Prior to my Broughty involvement, I also served on the committee of Kingsway Athletic Amateur Club in their first few seasons and I was a season ticket holder at Tannadice for over twenty-five years before becoming involved at Whitton Park.
“On a lighter note, being involved with football has enabled me to avoid shopping on Saturdays, as being married for over thirty years and having two daughters, a man needs male company at least one day a week!"
