Graham Houston

I have been a member of the Scottish National Party since 1966 and have held a variety of posts in my local branch and constituency.  I am an experienced management coach and mentoring and have held a number of Non-Executive Director posts in the public and private sectors.

Prior to setting up my own consultancy, I was the Scottish Director of the Work Foundation (formerly The Industrial Society).

In February 2009, I was appointed Chairman of The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA).

In October 2012, I was appointed as a Board Member to the first Scottish Police Authority.

I am married with two grown up children and have lived in Dunblane since 1985.

Leisure interests (time permitting) include golf, gardening and reading.  I am a member of Rotary and an elder in the Church of Scotland.
