Peter has led a variety of not-for-profit organisations for over two decades. Before that, he had over twenty year’s management experience with Commonwealth Bank.

He is the founding Chair of Mid North Coast Rural Health and Medical Research Foundation and a director of the charitable organisation The Patricia Dukes Foundation.
