RECOMMENDATIONS
Erika Maynard, Product Manager

Peter is remarkable as both a manager and product management leader. As my manager, I always felt that my growth and development was one of his top priorities. He challenges himself and others to give 110% and set a high bar for quality and performance. He would be an asset to any company he works for. I am extremely fortunate that I had the opportunity to work with Peter and I am grateful for his continued mentorship.

Peter is an outstanding product manager and team leader. He has unbelievable vision and a passion for making exceptional products. I have worked with Peter on teams with very diverse talents, and he finds a way to unify the team and guide them to their maximum potential. Peter is always willing to go to bat for his team, allowing members to take risks and create unique products. This has led to amazing products and highly productive teams. I strongly recommend Peter to lead any product management team.

Jack Vance, Director of Analytics

I can say without exaggeration that he is a phenomenal product manager, leader and influencer. I have great respect for how he came into a new highly technical environment, learned the fundamentals and developed short to long term plans to improve operations. Beyond his organization and perspective the real gift that Peter brings to a team is his inclusive and collaborative way of being to bring about change. No matter what the situation may be he frames every conversation from a positive perspective that enables collaboration, empowers the team and puts the company first.
