Business Development Manager
Peter leads Business Development for TecruiT. Peter has a deep technical understanding derived from more than 30 years’ experience of leading service, engineering and commercial teams to deliver successful and innovative solutions.
His most recent achievement before joining TecruiT was leading the team that earned a Queens Award for Industry in 2012 for improving the travel experience of the UK’s driving public. This included a patent claim for Peter’s work on microwave antenna design patterns. Key to the success of the business was delivering quality on time; key to this being the timely recruiting of the right people, cost effectively.
Midway through his career, Peter operated at sales director level in the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industry managing worldwide teams for more than 10 years securing revenue streams from strategic accounts (most notable are: Nokia, Ericson and Motorola) and at regional director level for territories including Scandinavia, UK, Middle East and South Africa. It was once said that “maintaining team motivation and a unified vision across the world” was probably my greatest success; in Peter’s view, good people make a business better.
Before EDA Peter spent many years in electronics engineering, engineering management and service management; his most notable achievement in this period was enabling a new business venture by innovative thinking; using computers to fix computers. Peter introduced computerized functional test and repair assist solutions into the service and repair environment enabling the creation of a world class computer hard disk rapid service and repair business with zero defects policy.
