Marketing, brand strategy and working with teams has been the common thread running through Peter’s diverse career. He brings an excellent understanding of marketing, branding and strategic theory gained from his formal studies (B.Ec, MBA (Dux)) and his work as an academic in the early 90’s teaching Monash University MBA students Marketing and Strategic Marketing.
His career has also afforded ample opportunities to apply his marketing and branding knowledge first hand. In addition to consulting Peter has also spent three years as General Manager Marketing for Coles Myer’s Financial Services Company and five years as Managing Director and partner in a speciality retail group.
A large proportion of his time is spent developing Brand Charters for clients to ensure there are blueprints in place for driving all key organisational decisions pertaining to brands.
He has developed Brand Charters for a diverse range of brands that include the NRMA, King Island Dairy, Eyre Peninsula, Brown Brothers, Griffith University, Melbourne Business School, Greenpeace, Delfin Lendlease, Transurban/CityLink, Chemmart, Essendon Football Club and Becton.
Peter established Brand DNA in 2000 and in 2006 merged with design agency Storm – which in turn morphed into the creative brand design agency Truly Deeply in 2010. As a brand design agency Truly Deeply’s skill set bridges brand thinking, brand identity and breathing life into a brand…and in this regard Peter brings lots of oxygen to the game!
