He was an early pioneer in establishing Kyte Broking, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Kyte Group, where he served as Chief Executive from 2000 up to his steering the business through its acquisition by GFI Group in 2010.

From there, Peter went on to serve on a number of boards within the financial sector including notable firms such as RJ O’Brien, Hamilton Court FX and PrismFP. Most profoundly, however, is Peter’s contribution to education where he continues his hands-on involvement in providing strategic guidance and governance oversight in the sixth-form sector.
