Graham Viles

Group Commercial Director

Graham qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant in 1988, following the completion of his degree in Accountancy at UEA Norwich. After training in  the Audit team at Grant Thornton’s, Graham was recruited  into the position of Financial Director at Petal Group, a Greeting Card Publisher. The company grew dramatically in that time and in 2002, Graham was closely involved in the successful sale of the business to a major competitor.

Graham spent several years working for a Sourcing company in China then returned to the UK and held the position of Financial Controller for Sodexo PLC at Ascot Racecourse. This role included the implementation of a new Electronic Till system at the new stadium. This investment of £500k was until recently the largest single system in operation in Europe and it has been a major success for Sodexo. Graham was responsible for Cash Management on site which during Royal Ascot, totalled £4m over the week. 

In April 2007 Graham joined Brand Learning, initially as Finance Manager and in time became responsible for Finance, Commerical, Office and IT functions at the business. Graham has recently celebrated 10 years at the company. 

Married to Kitty, Graham enjoys football, sadly no longer playing, squash, skiing and swimming. Graham has been learning Mandarin so he can understand what his wife is saying about him.
