Peter grew up on the rough and tumble streets of Brooklyn, New York, which allowed him to hone his negotiating skills at an early age – or, as he puts it: “I learned to run very fast.” Community involvement is important to Peter. He is a certified soccer referee and was the head soccer coach for his kids when they started playing soccer. An Eagle Scout, Peter graduated with a BA from the University of Dayton in 1981. When he isn’t speaking or consulting, he loves to spend as much spare time as possible with his wife Jeanann and their daughter Morgan and son Tyler. Peter enjoys an occasional round of golf and spending time with his children because Jeanann won’t let him skydive. Peter’s Twitter profile says this: Husband, Dad, business developer, marketing executive, speaker, volunteer and cool dude.
