What brought you to Deallus?
After ten or so years of management consulting, I went into industry and built a strong consulting team with a large footprint in the US but with a lot of responsibility in Asia-Pacific as well. Then, I was in industry for many years in different positions, both global and US, and I kept hearing “Peter, you still think and operate like a consultant.” I tried to parse through the dimensions of this comment – I thought about my career and what really motivates and energizes me, and I came to the conclusion that consulting is an exciting place to be. The corporate side has fantastic challenges as well, but some elements of consulting really resonate with me – innovation, pushing the frontier, and seeing across different practices and ways of working to find success are a few. So I went from B2B to B2C – Back To Consulting!
What do you like about Deallus?
Deallus, being a consulting firm really focused on the life sciences industry, has a strong presence in all major pharma markets around the world, a highly credentialed team, and top-notch capabilities. In addition, their depth of therapeutic area knowledge and expertise, and their strong core in competitive intelligence, are extremely impressive.
Life outside of work
I am married and have three kids, and honestly, as long as the kids are at home, it’s just great fun to hang out and play with them. When I say play, that’s sometimes board games, but it’s also instruments. My son plays piano, as have I for many, many years, and my daughter plays the violin. My family also enjoys visiting museums and we travel quite a bit as well.
