Peter is both a friend and a business colleague. I first met Peter socially when he was working in Private Equity in London. I later became a seed investor and silent partner in a business he founded, grew and successfully sold. Since then I have represented him in many engagements ranging from private equity business formations, recapitalizations, and transactional situations. Peter has a deep and broad understanding of the mechanics of successful business, this being the product of an intelligent, inquiring mind and solid experience. His expertise covers investing in, founding and running companies in growth stage, as well as working effectively at an institutional level. He has a natural grasp of technology which is complemented by keen business acumen, having grown up in an entrepreneurially oriented family. His negotiating skills are very strong. Peter is a highly energetic and positive person, he is personable and easy to get along with and his integrity is beyond question.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Peter on the development and launching of the eCommerce portal at Advanta . Peter’s constant focus on execution and delivery was relentless. He is a performer who constantly challenged our team to think outside the box and execute flawlessly. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Peter which makes writing the commentary very easy.
Peter's work and support was invaluable to the company for which I served as CEO. He brought a great deal of knowledge and an extraordinarily helpful attitude. Peter understands what is required for an enterprise to succeed.
I had the pleasure of working with Peter in multiple capacities at Advanta, first in at Advanta Mortgage where he was spearheading the Internet Mortgage Business and again in the Venture Capital Division where he was identifying promising Internet start-ups for capital investment. Peter brings an amazing amount of creativity, knowledge and experience to the table. His leadership, entrepreneurial spirit, and technical acumen were greatly valued on our team. He is a skilled negotiator, tough but fair, and always demands excellence. It was exciting to be a part of Peter's team. He is a respected colleague and I heartily recommend his work.
Peter was an advisor to my company and helped us strategize about how to stay viable in a very difficult market. His hands on entrepreneurial experience enables him to quickly become your partner in your business. I found him to be enormously helpful with numerous components of running a business including; marketing, business development, product development, positioning and operations. Peter is a real asset and can quickly become an effective member of your team. Recommending Peter is a no brainer.
