Advertising Executive, Athlete, Coach
A New Jersey transplant, born in Queens and raised on Long Island, New York, Peter’s early career path, which traveled through high school, college and professional baseball, took a major detour in the 1970s. That’s when, after service with the US Army during the Vietnam era, a return to college to complete his degree, and marriage to Monique, he entered the advertising industry.
“Einstein said it: ‘Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.’ …I’m trying.”
Now, having been a part of some of the world’s most well-known advertising firms and run his own agency and marketing consultancies for more than four decades, he’s combining his broad business and athletic experience to help others.
That means working on behalf of charities and community service programs of virtually every size, scope and calling. In particular, Peter has been volunteering, mentoring and applying his coaching, marketing and communications talents to groups focused on kids and young people while fostering the value of sports as a means to both enhance health and learn important life lessons.
