Resume

Prior to Endava Graeme was VP of UX at QuanticMind, a Redwood City startup focused on machine-learning algorithms for SEM bid optimization. Before that he ran User Experience Design for the core US business in American Express's Consumer Products and Services Division, building a full-stack UX team that worked on innovation projects and launched a paradigm-shifting redesign of the mobile consumer app.

Graeme has been working in hands-on, tactical aspects of user research, information architecture, user interface design, visual design, content, and branding since the late 1990s. Over the past decade he's been in executive roles building full-stack UX teams for corporate and start-up businesses.

Graeme has a successful history building teams from the ground up and proving the value of UX in competitive business landscapes. His teams focus on user-centered design principles and customer empathy, working within agile, cross-functional Product/Design/Engineering software development processes. His teams forge robust, data-driven solutions by embracing the breadth and depth, ideology, and methods of practical UX – analyzing usage, talking to customers, design thinking (ideation, expression, iteration), and vetting product visions through prototyping.

Graeme has spent time in both large and small companies working collaboratively with Business, Product, Engineering, Marketing, and Brand. His experience with reconciling user needs, business needs, scope, cost, and time have been proven time and again by producing significant, measurable results in key metrics and end-user satisfaction.
