We asked Graham to answer a few questions for us. Here are his thoughtful responses.
What do you like about working for 729?
I love working in a small company where everyone knows each other. Knowing each other helps us keep our team efficient and our processes sharp.
What are your hobbies?
I love heading out in my RV (Recreational Vehicle). It’s a great way to see this land we live in while bringing all the comforts of home with me!
What are you doing to entertain yourself during COVID-19 Stay At Home orders?
I’ve kept busy with a project converting an old aluminum boat into a “BedBoat!” It includes blanks and pillows and is perfect to take for a lazy cruise down the Russian River.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
The best advice I’ve heard is this: Always keep people informed – we all want agency in life.
What advice would you give a candidate who wants to join our team of superstars?
729 Solutions has been a virtually located company since 2009, which was a real benefit when everyone started working at home during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. We want new team members who are comfortable working in a virtual environment and are awesome at working from home.

What is your favorite word in the English language?
My favorite word in the English language is “pupil.” It’s one of those words that just sounds ridiculous if you say it too many times in a row, and that always makes me laugh.
What is your favorite word in another language?
My favorite word in another language comes from Chinese and is “Mei Banfa.” It means that we have to accept that there isn’t a solution to every problem we face. I love this concept, so this word really resonates with me.
What is the most inspiring part of your job?
I love learning about peoples’ interesting business ideas. As the head of sales, all client projects run through me and it is amazing to learn what new technology solutions and services people have thought up.
If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be?
My superpower would be the ability to slow down time. There’s too much I want to get done, and never enough time to do it all. Slowing down time would be a magical solution to the time problem!
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I was extra smart as a kid; I knew the goal as a grown-up was to retire!
If you were a pasta shape, what shape would you be and why?
I would be penne pasta. No reason, it’s just my favorite kind of pasta.
Is there anything else you’d like the world to know about you?
I speak five different languages; I love being a polyglot.
