Graeme Keith

Global Professional Services Lead, Risk Quantification

Graeme Keith

Graeme Keith joined Archer as Global Professional Services Lead for Risk Quantification in March 2022 to support the expanded focus on risk quantification. In this capacity, Graeme works closely with Archer customers to increase their focus on connecting risk analysis to the most strategic aspects of their business. Strategic risk management requires both the ability to analyze risks over different corporate scales and to articulate the trade-off between risk and reward. Both of these are only possible using quantitative methods, Graeme shows clients how to use their data and in-house expertise to make simple quantitative assessments of risk and then helps them to understand how these can be used to inform operational and strategic business decisions.

Graeme’s work on behalf of Archer clients leverages an extensive background in working across corporate strategy and risk management. Prior to running his own consultancy focused on risk quantification, Graeme served in twin roles as lead strategy advisor and head of enterprise risk management at Maersk Oil.

Since completing his doctorate in applied mathematics at Cambridge in 2000, Graeme has worked with the practical application of mathematical modelling across a wide variety of fields and industries. First as a research associate at Cambridge and later as a engineering consultant based in Copenhagen, Graeme started out developing mathematical models for failure investigation, risk management and decision analysis. After 10 years in consultancy, Graeme started applying his analytical acumen to strategy and portfolio management for capital intensive project portfolios, first as head of research at the oil and gas division of DONG E&P and later as exploration portfolio manager at Maersk Oil.

Graeme teaches at Copenhagen University and the Technical University of Denmark. He is a fellow of the UK institute of Mathematics and its Applications and a chartered mathematician. He is also on the board of the Risk chapter of the Danish Engineering Society.

Graeme lives in Copenhagen with his wife Karin, his three children, their cat Salamis, a growing collection of musical instruments and an even more rapidly growing collection of books.
