Peter has been an integral part of the establishment of Albury Wodonga Regional FoodShare.
Peter’s consulting business was contracted to write our business plan in 2011, and as the saying goes; “he liked it so much he bought the company”. Well, not quite… he loved the project so much he volunteered his time to help lead the charge and ensure we got off the ground and into action.
We very quickly snapped him up as our manager the minute we secured funds. Why? Well….
Peter has worked in the food industry for over 40 years. He started as a management trainee at Safeway Supermarket. He soon became the manager and then worked in their head office on store design and sales.
Peter then worked for 11 years at a senior level with 7-Eleven and Caltex National Trade Promotions Manager and Ampol as their Merchandise Manager.
Later, Peter successfully ran an independent group of 4 supermarkets and enjoyed growing their success.
This invaluable experience enabled Peter to successfully establish his consulting business, “Coalface Consulting” in 2000. Since that time Peter has worked for numerous food producers, manufacturers and retailers on such projects as data improvement, customer service strategies, distribution strategies, and product strategies.
He is good with numbers too, with a Diploma of Commerce (Accounting) from Swinburne University.
Peter has an enormous depth of knowledge about the food industry, logistics, systems, and strategy. And he is a super friendly kind of guy that is committed to doing good in our community.
We are so lucky to have him on board with us.
