Graham grew up in eastern North Carolina, the son of a cotton and peanut farmer. He worked summers on the family farm and understands inherently the dedication and work it takes to be successful in this industry. He also grew to appreciate the importance of the farming industry to the North Carolina community.
Graham’s early career was in commercial real estate with a specialization in farm land and timber tracts. With this experience, he transitioned to finance in a position with an agricultural lender. Graham has successfully established many relationships within the agribusiness community. Through these pursuits Graham has gained a broad perspective and appreciation for the importance agriculture has on our overall economy. He came to understand the particular concerns that these business owners face, particularly the effects that input costs can have on a farmer’s cash flow.
In 2014, Graham brought his valuable insight to Atlantic, helping to put together packaging and supply programs for farmers that would bring stability and remove some of the layers of risk that these customers face. By offering integrated packaging system lines, competitive pricing, excellent service, and routine deliveries, Atlantic’s agriculture and produce program brings incredible value to our farming community.
