Pete was a highly valued contributor to the strategic direction of the Grantium. He provided exceptional insight and always offered innovative thinking and perspectives while demonstrating his results oriented leadership style in ensuring effective execution of initiatives under his direction.
As Board Chairman at Vana, Peter was instrumental in the success of Vana including my personal growth as a first-time CEO, our raising of capital and exit to FinancialForce.com. I highly recommend Peter.
I have had the good fortune of working with Pete both in his capacity as a strategic advisor on new projects/corporate direction, and as a personal mentor as I navigate my own corporate path. In every instance my experience with Pete is the same - he is clear-sighted and line-driven, deeply wise offering a broad tapestry of experience, and is as direct as he is kind. Given his consistently sound guidance, I will rely on Pete for strategic sense going forward, and would highly recommend him to any executive looking for the same.
Pete worked with my company, Mabel's Labels for several years. We were first introduced through the Innovation Factory, where he was a Executive in Residence, and quickly moved to including him on our team as an Operational Coach and Advisor. He assisted us in moving towards a bigger growth plan, and was ultimately on the team of advisors that assisted us through selling our business in the fall on 2015. Pete is knowledgeable, frank and brings a large network that he leverages for information and advice. He was a key member of our executive team and helped us through a time of great change in our business.
Pete has been a mentor of mine for many years. He always provides realistic, pragmatic and honest feedback and coaching, both to me and others with whom he works. Pete is an excellent networker and has a terrific ability to connect professionals who can be helpful to one another. He doesn't shy away from the tough discussions that force thoughtful and difficult decisions that are to the long-term benefit of the individual. His advice has benefited me tremendously in my career and helped me grow into the position that I hold as well as to strive toward future achievements.
Peter's strength lies in his ability to "connect the dots" and bring together people, ideas, experiences and knowledge. He effortlessly bridges the "start-up" world with the established technology world. What impresses me most is how quickly he assimilates new ideas and paradigm shifts into his thinking and strategy - giving you the benefit of both his long experience and recent learnings.
I’ve had the good fortune of being personally mentored by Pete for several years now. As a confidant and trusted advisor, Pete has helped me navigate my career path, challenged me to see different points of view and encouraged me to develop skills and competencies well outside of my comfort zone. He is always one step ahead, but is brilliant at giving me room to come to my own conclusions. Pete is honest with his feedback, generous with his network and targeted with his advice. Whether it’s a story from his successful career or a book to read, he always has a resource to drive the point home. If you could be so lucky, you’ll have a meal with Pete and he will inspire you because he’s just that kind of guy.
I have leveraged Peter's skills and experience in a variety of areas. Peter is deep in experience, thorough in his work, operates with the highest standard of integrity, and a great pleasure to work with.
Peter is the kind of straight-shooting, experienced, seasoned and expert executive you quickly wish you had on the board of your company. He's capable of asking the hard questions and he often does, invariably provoking a great deal of productive and enlightening soul-searching that ultimately leads to better decision making, better strategies, and more profit. If you're looking for someone to make a difference in your business, look no further.
