Is a Chartered Marketer and Fellow of The Chartered Institute of Marketing, the world’s leading marketing organisation. Peter has 27 years experience in Construction business development, marketing and sales.
In 2009 and after working at senior management and director level for major and regional contractors achieving high levels of growth, Peter set up his own consultancy, Refraction Marketing. The primary goal was to focus on SME contractors and construction consultants to help them achieve growth at a time when the economic climate was severely depressed.
Over the last 5 years Peter has developed a range of client, including consulting engineers, cost consultants, mechanical and electrical consultants, Main Contractors and Sub-Contractors and in each case has helped them to achieve significant growth by working to a structured plan and defined marketing budget. This has resulted in some cases of growth rates of in excess of 20% per annum, with several millions of pounds added to fee levels/turnover and better margins through improved work selection and appointments to frameworks.
Peter has continued to work with a number of the clients that he started with in 2009, because even as the market improves, the challenges keep evolving, requiring new solutions and the new growth that has been created needs constantly managing.
Peter is a likeable and enthusiastic professional who takes pride in helping organisations to grow and mentoring others to become better at business development, marketing and sales. More than anything, Peter is a” real practitioner”, rather than a theorist, someone you can identify with, trust and build an excellent working relationship with.
