His career in the construction industry spans over 50 years during which time he was the chief operating officer of one of Europe’s largest steel construction companies and following retirement from the specialist sector seven years ago he has been a director of one of the UK’s major construction companies and is a none executive director of a Yorkshire based steel specialist. In recent times both of the above roles have been undertaken through Peters consultancy.
