Peter is an accomplished professional with 35+ years of experience in the private and not-for-profit sectors. He has advanced capabilities in public relations, corporate marketing, business development, advocacy, member relations and fundraising."

On accepting the position of CEO, Peter stated, "it is a privilege to be offered the chance to work for an organization like the Chamber which I have admired and been a member of for over three decades. As CEO, Bert has set a high bar in the provincial Chamber community and I look forward to the challenge of following in his footsteps."

Peter has a history of volunteerism including serving on several not-for-profit boards and committees including: The Hamilton Chamber of Commerce, Hamilton Community Foundation, United Way of Burlington and Greater Hamilton and Junior Achievement of Hamilton.
Peter is a Marketing and Public Relations Consultant who moved with his wife Deborah, a Social Worker with a practice in Private Adoption and Counselling, to Georgian Bluffs five years ago from Ancaster, Ontario. They chose to pursue their careers in a community more in keeping with their work and lifestyle and which they consider Ontario's hidden gem.
