Peter leads Zenith Tecnica’s customer engagements and the engineering team to ensure that customer requirements are met. Peter started with Zenith Tecnica as a mechanical engineer in 2016 and has been a leader in the production team since 2018 when he was managing day-to-day production efforts. Since then he has moved to further engaging with customers to help solve their technical challenges and meet their ever-changing production requirements as demand for our services has grown.

Because Peter has been part of every stage of Zenith Tecnica’ s manufacturing processes since 2016 he has a wealth of knowledge to share with our customers to help them take their products to market.

Prior to starting at Zenith Tecnica, Peter spent time at Fisher and Paykel Healthcare in 2015 working on accelerated life testing, gauge repeatability and reproducibility, and various other metrology areas in an ISO13485 medical device production environment.

While at the University of Auckland, Peter was the team manager of the Formula SAE Team – A team of 50 that designs, manufactures, and races a formula style open-wheel race every year. After leading the development to an electric powertrain, he has good understanding of mechanical and electrical systems, maintaining relationships with sponsors & suppliers, and the challenges of running a technical team. Peter was also involved in the composites team and has experience in mould making, hand laying pre-impregnated fibres, wet laminating, and infusing CFRP components.

In his spare time, he enjoys road trips, swimming, and spectating or participating in motorsport events.
