Graham has spent the last two years as International Integration Director, where he has supported global operations and worked to introduce new systems and processes to assist the businesses in Australia, Canada and Germany, working closely with the German team. Previously he was Business Winning Director at QinetiQ and before that held a number of Business Development roles within QinetiQ and other defence and engineering companies. Prior to working in Business Development, Graham served seven years in the Corps of Royal Engineers.

Andy Thorp, Chief Executive International, said:

“Firstly, I would like to thank Volker for his dedication and contribution to the German business over the past two and half years and wish him all the best in his new pursuits. I would also like to congratulate Graham on his new role. After the great work he has done in further integrating our International businesses into the QinetiQ Group, it was a natural progression for Graham to lead the German business through the next stage of its journey.”

Graham said:

“I am excited to be given the opportunity to take the German business forward, supporting and working with our team of pilots and aviation experts in Augsburg, Emden, Kiel and Mönchengladbach, to be part of a leading organisation in aerial training and ISR services in Germany and more widely across Europe.”
