A mechanical engineer by profession, Peter first got into the timber industry when he had to learn machining timber profiles for a family business over a three year period. By the end of it he was doing timber sales as well, and he hasn’t looked back since.
Peter’s timber industry experience includes 12 years in the hardware industry where he sold timber, pre-nail frames and trusses to private owners, builders and developers – not to mention the fact that the role required he learn to reads plans as a result of his work with laminated veneer lumber (LVL).
Peter has been with LumberBank for the last 13 years, getting alongside a broad variety of people from scaffolders, merchants and joiners to general managers and multi-millionaire business owners. His knowledge and contribution has been invaluable.
“We have a great group of colleagues here, and the team is good at backing each other up to make sure our clients are satisfied, so that they keep coming back.”
“I still get a buzz out of getting the deal or thinking outside the square to close the sale.”
