Peter is also responsible for arranging and administering group insurances.


Peter qualified while working at Peat Marwick Mitchell & Co (now KMPG) in 1985. He has spent most of his career in the general insurance sector and spent over 10 years with, the now listed, Hastings Insurance Services Limited (Hastings Direct) from prior to its launch in 1997 through to a trade sale 10 years later. Peter was the Founding Finance Director.

After leaving the business, he returned to his financial roots as Finance Director or a large regional law firm for 4 years.
