Allt-Graham is an experienced consultant who has advised both government and commercial clients on supply chain strategy and transformation for over 25 years. He helps clients with aligning supply chain to strategic objectives, and delivering operational, cost, customer experience and environmental outcomes.

His previous roles have included being a partner and Sydney Office Leader for GRA (which was acquired in March 2021 by Accenture), and spending over a decade at KPMG, among others serving as leader of the National and ASPAC Business Performance Services practice (within its Management Consulting wing), and as National Head of Risk Consulting (leading a team of 600+ professionals).

“James brings a breadth of experience in supply chain strategy and transformation that will benefit our clients as the economy continues to realign around changing economics, geopolitical considerations and environmental leadership,” said Jayasinghe.

Speaking of the opportunities he sees at Trace, Allt-Graham stated, “After unprecedented change and business interruption in recent years, clients have an opportunity to capitalise on the digital investments that have been made to improve customer experience and reduce costs. In addition, building business cases for automation and targeted investments in optimisation and AI technologies are key considerations at a time of significant inflation and labour shortages.”
