Global Finance Director
As our Global Finance Director, Peter provides an outstanding service to our customers and suppliers, through efficient and simple systems and financial processes. He promotes efficiency in our organisation while providing business support across divisions.
With a varied career spanning roles across banking, public research and publishing, Peter has a strong understanding of business operations. For eight years, his career at Elsevier took him between Amsterdam, Oxford and London, where he held finance and strategy roles, including supporting the transition from print to electronic book publishing. This international experience has given Peter valuable insights into delivering a premium customer service across different cultures. He always looks for ways to improve quality of information and services and he is a firm believer in using processes to overcome challenges.
Peter joined Achilles in January 2016 to help support the transformation of the finance team, implement new systems and processes and support the next generation of the platform and customer experience.
Peter spends much of his free time at home in the countryside either gardening, helping his wife look after their adopted ponies, or enjoying a walk with their dog, appreciating the opportunity to undertake a hands-on lifestyle outside when away from the office. He is also a competent golfer and enthusiastic cook. When he gets chance, Peter also loves to travel. His idea of a perfect getaway includes: “good company, weather, food and wine, as well as a smattering of history and culture”.
