After 21 years selling and marketing a variety of laboratory instrumentation in global markets, Peter established Insight in 2011.
“I’d been working with recruiters in several parts of the world, both as a client and as a candidate. I was tired of talking to people that didn’t understand our industry and it’s complexities and who were driven by metrics based on quantity rather than quality. So I decided to do it myself!”
Peter has worked in senior, Board level positions and worked in many different markets including 2 years in the US.
