With over 80 staff across nine businesses under the Health Focus brand, Peter runs a small team to cover all aspects of business building, marketing, advertising, finances and general business management and development.

Peter has extensive experience with managing growth business environments having taken HFP Pharmacies from a $600k turnover to over $15M in a decade.

Coming from a finance background with 12 years banking industry experience, Peter left the banking industry in 1990 and forged a career in small business development, marketing and finance, first establishing his own small marketing, advertising and promotions business and then later, working in the area of assisting small businesses to grow and prosper.
