Word Podcast 308 - Graham Parker

Graham Parker had an unusual career trajectory. "I didn't pay my dues until after I had some success," he says. In the wake of his greatest triumph, 1979's "Squeezing Out Sparks", he broke up his partnership with the Rumour and moved to America. Here he was the unwitting beneficiary of a record business which had difficulty adapting to a changed world. In the 80s and 90s, he says, they actually gave him too much money. A few years back he resumed his partnership with the Rumour, who were all present and correct and all got on with each other, a state of affairs almost unique in rock and roll.

EPISODE 6 GRAHAM PARKER, CO-FOUNDER & CEO AT AWARD-WINNING OCEAN SOFTWARE PLATFORM KONTAINERS 

—————————————————

Welcome to Episode 6 of Profiles, a podcast centered around supply chain conversations hosted by Brian Glick, founder and CEO of Chain.io.

Our guest this week is Graham Parker, Co-Founder and CEO at award winning Ocean Software platform Kontainers. 

Listen in as Brian and Graham discuss:

  • The differences between supply chain logistics systems in the US and the UK
  • How a lot of people who get into the supply chain industry begin with dreams of global trade and currencies and maybe they picture something from a movie, but when they actually start the first day and see the pile of paperwork some of them don’t make it to lunch time. So — what was it about the logistics industry that made Graham stay?
  • Who influenced Graham in his career
  • What inspired Graham to create something new in the world of supply chain logistics
  • Everything takes longer than you think (what Graham knows now that he wish he’d known when he started in supply chain logistics)
  • The importance of setting appropriate expectations up front
  • Whether venture capital investors are patient enough to support logistics projects that don’t yield return for several years
  • Learning moments and challenges over the last 5 years
    • Managing expectations allowed them to not grow too fast so that now they are in charge of the destiny of their business
    • It’s easy to over-raise capital too early
  • The importance of having senior management that understands the tech space as well as the freight space
  • Whether or not a few mega-companies could corner the market in the freight industry like Amazon has done, or if there is room for several companies in the space
  • The trajectory the freight and logistics industry should be taking in order to survive in the future
