Pete arrived with his young family to Marlborough in 2007. They chose to live here, believing that the region is a world beater as a place to raise a family.
Over those years he has seen a lot of development and growth, with additions such as the ASB Theatre, Convention Centre, the Stadium development and Picton marina upgrades, as well as many others. Pete is excited to be part of our Board as he would like to be part of enabling the next stage of development throughout the region.
Since his arrival in Marlborough he has worked in the winery business, running Seresin Estate, then as Managing Director of the Highfield TerraVin for the last 3 years. Pete has recently joined Bayleys Marlborough in their Commercial Sales team.
This experience combined with 20 years in senior roles in large hospitality businesses and owning his own Consultancy and Gastropubs has given him a broad understanding of the varied challenges facing businesses across Marlborough.
Pete has been on the Board of Trustees at Springlands School for the last 7 years and has been the Board Chair for the last 3 years.
