About Graham Jenkins

Graham commenced his career in marketing in the UK and for the next ten years followed a management career in sales and marketing management. This was primarily focused on consumer goods in the food industry and the automotive sector.  He gained a reputation for building high performance teams and increasing market share through targeted marketing programmes.

He was approached to come to Australia in 1982 and for five years worked in general management with two international manufacturing companies - Jaguar-Rover and the General Electric Company. In both cases he implemented major restructuring which dramatically improved the profitability of his business units. 

Graham joined the executive search and selection field in 1987 with his appointment to a leading executive recruiting practice in Sydney where he used traditional search methodologies to recruit for Board positions, General Managers and other senior executives. He handled assignments in property, manufacturing, information technology and financial services. In 1991 he established an executive search and selection company, Trinity, and progressively built the reputation, expertise and size of the organisation. In addition, whilst handling leadership responsibilities as Managing Director, he remained hands-on in search and recruitment, handling senior and international appointments. He left Trinity in 2004 after selling the business to a publicly-listed company but still remains active in executive search and recruitment.

For five years Graham was also NSW President of the Recruitment & Consulting Services Association (RCSA) - the peak body for the industry - and also sat on the National Board. He presided over a period of substantial growth for the association and was heavily involved with government lobbying on behalf of the industry. In recognition of his achievements he was honoured with Life Membership.

Graham now operates as a business mentor, an executive coach, executive search consultant and recruitment strategist and can advise on most issues in the field of the employment and retention of senior executive staff.

Graham was a TEC member for 6 years before becoming Chair of TEC 31 in 2006. In 2010 he hopes to start a KEY Executive group for senior executives one level below the CEO in their company. Click the link to find out more about these groups.
