An engineer with construction in the marine environment, Peter has a wide range of experience in managing the implementation of complex deepwater projects.
After completing his B.Sc. in Engineering Science from the University of Durham, UK, he practiced engineering as a designer of marine structures in the UK, the Middle East and then in Vancouver, British Columbia. He became a member of the Institution of Civil Engineers in 1978, and a member of the Professional Engineers of British Columbia in 1981. In 1986 he began specializing in underwater construction, managing construction and maintenance projects at variety of sites in North America and around the world.
In 1997 Peter was hired as a consultant to manage the implementation of a submarine telecommunications system running between Vancouver, BC, Victoria, BC and Seattle, WA. That project led to Peter becoming the General Manager of the Marine Group, first at Ledcor, then at Worldwide Fibre, and finally at 360networks. As General Manager, Peter was responsible for management of the contracting and implementation of a variety of submarine telecommunications systems, including a transatlantic system and a system from New York to Rio de Janeiro.
Peter has been involved with the NEPTUNE Canada project since 2002 as a member of the Systems Engineering Team. He served full-time as Associate Director, Engineering & Operations, from 2004 through 2009.
