I have worked with Peter on a number of projects over the past few years. I have always found Peter to be very knowledgeable, insightful, and a pleasure to work with. I would be more than happy to discuss Peter if needed. He is a real pro.
CFO, Protection One
In my position as CFO of Protection One, I worked closely with Peter when we acquired Criticom Monitoring Services, the largest wholesale monitoring operation in the U.S., and can attest to his deep knowledge of alarm monitoring operations and the security alarm industry.

I highly recommend Peter for any company seeking expert advice about the security monitoring business or needing an experienced operating executive.
