Biography

Peter joined the Beedie School of Business at SFU from the Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario where his thesis examined organizational decision-making. Peter has had a long association with higher education and has taught at several business schools. Prior to academia, Peter had more than two decades of industrial experience working in a number of senior line and staff positions as well as consulting to a diverse range of Fortune 500, government, and start-up organizations across North America.

The University, says Peter, meets several of his life goals, allows him to make a greater contribution to society and offers new challenges. "Many industry practitioners are preoccupied with 'what' rather than the more useful 'why' and how' of theory,” he says. “These are my interests."

Peter has always considered himself a 'closet academic' with a curious passion for eclectic reading. Some of his favourite authors include Daniel Kahneman (Thinking Fast and Slow),  James Gleick (Genius: The biography of Richard Feynman), Peter Bernstein (Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk), David Halberstam (The Coldest Winter), Margaret MacMillan (Paris 1919, Six Months that Changed the World) and Neil Postman (Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business).

Peter is a member of the Senate Commitee on University Priorities (SCUP), the Senate Commitee on University Honours (SCUH), the Electoral Standing Commitee (ESC), Calendar Committee (CC (Chair)) and the Senate Commitee on Agenda and Rules (SCAR). He serves as Vice-Chair of the Senate and as Associate Dean Undergraduate Programs he serves on a number of Beedie committees. 

Outside of the University, Peter is the president and CEO of Octothorpe Software Corporation, a decision sciences company.

Specialization and Research Interests

Decision making, sport management, disruptive technology, business strategy and social issues of technology.
