For a number of years, he also held the position of Head of Supply Chain for KPMG Asia Pacific.

While Australia will always be home for Peter, he and his family spent 3 years living in Shanghai between 2012 and 2015, where Peter worked with the firm’s China practice to support multinational clients in the development of their China and Asia market entry strategies and to help them realign their global and regional supply chains.

Outside of work, Peter enjoys spending time with his family and the occasional game of golf, but after his time in China he has returned to Australia with a passion for karaoke.
