Experience matters when it comes to navigating Wall Street
Peter and I worked together for two years, and he was an exceptional asset and team player. His experience and knowledge, previously as an IR consultant/advisor where he experienced many different environments was extremely helpful as we collaborated on defining the IR strategy and executed the implementation. It was not easy, but ultimately successful despite many challenges. I would highly recommend him to any organization looking to set up, or upgrade its IR function.
I worked with Peter from 2015 thru 2016 during a period of broad commercial and financial transition at Amyris. He worked closely with me on a regular basis during quarterly and year-end reporting and various financings. He was a key member of our financing team in interfacing with investment banking contacts and researching and compiling due diligence items that were required.
He is astute at understanding complex issues that would be of interest to stakeholders while carefully aligning all communications activities toward supporting consistency in the company’s messaging. He asks the right questions and was heavily relied upon and fully trusted to always get the job done.
No matter how stressful the situation, his calm demeanor and ability to work under fire was a huge asset. Peter is a true professional.
I have worked directly with Peter and he provided IR services to my company since before that. Peter has always been professional, timely and provided valuable feedback and guidance in all areas of IR. I very much appreciated working with and would recommend him to anyone looking for IR services.

Immediately following our IPO, our executive team sought out Demer IR (prior agency where Peter served) to help us build our Investor Relations department and program. In working with the Demer IR team, I had quickly come to realize why they were sought after – it was because of Peter. He helped guide our company’s transition from startup to a public company, providing solid counsel and leadership to our team. He is truly a great partner.

When I became CFO at Symyx Technologies, a small public company, I decided to outsource investor relations. My former IR lead at Synopsys recommended Peter, and it was my good fortune she did. Peter and I had an excellent working relationship, and he did a great job across the board. He's experienced, results-oriented, responsive, self-starting, a good writer, and a great partner.

Peter was instrumental in teaching me everything there is to know about investor relations, from day-to-day tactical requirements to long-term strategic planning. His passion for the profession, along with his wealth of experience, makes him an elite IR professional. He understands the rigorous requirements to run a successful IR program, including executive communication, detailed financial analysis, successful script and news release writing, web site development, roadshow/analyst event planning, and investor targeting.

Peter was an asset to me in my investor relations role at Check Point Software, especially when I first joined the company. He helped with investor perception studies, investor targeting and intelligence, non-deal road show and analyst day planning. He is responsive, easy to work with, knowledgeable and a great IR resource. His years of experience counseling myriad companies in various industries gives him the ability to provide valuable counsel and insight to his clients.
