Peter worked in twelve countries and four continents,while he built his career from steward, at age 15 in Rome, to GM at Marriott International, Beresta Palace in Russia and many others. During his tenure as GM at Disneyland Paris he also concurrently held the position of VP of Food and Beverage for all the hotels and Festival Disney. During his career Peter received many awards for his diligence and hard work but specially for leadership skills and his qualities as a compassionate human being. Married with two adult children, he retired in 2013 and relocated to Portugal. He is now dedicating his time to public speaking, seminars, training and interim GM positions around the globe. Peter also advises universities and professional schools in Europe and Latin America. He also writes with flair and enthusiasm about his life and times working in the world's finest luxury hotels and restaurants. 'The Cardboard Suitcase' is the story of his own incredible life.
