Corporate Counsel was asked...8 October 2017

Graham is based in TN now because they merged with 2 sister companies. When they merged, the CEO from TN (one of the sister companies) became CEO of the newly merged company and he doesn't want to move. Rank is actually based in Chicago (for the USA). Rank is really a New Zealand company. It's pretty sad that a once great LOCAL company is now part of some international conglomerate. It is slowly being chipped away (multiple layoffs) and probably will be gone completely in the near future. Less

The interviewer was absolutely from Texas (they had a 469 (Dallas) area code).
