Graeme has been involved in the catering industry since 1980 and, following his relocation to Port Alfred in 1995, has been associated with the tourism industry. In 2014, his barge, Lady Biscay, was awarded the prestigious tourism Award of excellence by the Sunshine Coast Tourism Board. He is currently Manager of the Port Alfred River & Ski-boat Club, which position he has held for the past 6 years. Prior to being appointed Club Manager, he was convenor of the Powerboat Section of the Club and was instrumental in arranging with the organisers of the annual Formula I Powerboat Championships for one leg of the championship to be held in Port Alfred. This event drew spectators from around the country and the financial spin-off to the town was appreciated by the business community.
