Peter has had a dynamic career spanning Accenture, Microsoft, and IBM.

During Peter's time at Accenture, he was the partner globally responsible for the software business of the Digital Marketing Platform Group in Accenture Interactive. In this role his responsibilities included product development, sales, marketing, support, off-shore service delivery and alliances, with a reporting line direct into a main Board member of Accenture who was a direct report to the CEO.

While under the leadership of Peter, the software group tripled it's revenues in a very competitive marketing place providing marketing-based development, analytical, and operational tools to some of the worlds largest financial services, CPG, telecommunications, and automotive clients.

Prior to Accenture, Peter spent 14 years at Microsoft where he was very successful in several roles, winning several gold star awards for the delivery of excellent work.

His roles included several regional sales roles, followed by two spells as a Global Business Manager. Responsibilities included sales, services, client satisfaction, and global software deployment for two of Microsoft's largest accounts. In both of these global sales roles all performance objectives were successfully achieved, and Peter rose to director level.

In his last role at Microsoft, Peter was responsible for the One Microsoft initiative with a remit for tying together all the assets of Microsoft to deliver an end to end story. While in this role, he came up with a digital marketing solution that was successfully sold to several clients with the result of Peter being headhunted by Accenture to deliver the solutions.
