“I am studying a global Executive MBA (OneMBA) together with Peter, where it truly comes out that Peter is a "citizen of the world" – this is shown in his remarkable and critical analysis of businesses in Latin America vs. Europe, his insight into financial benchmarking instruments in different regions and also through his highly developed ideas about sustainability and triple-bottom-line reporting. Peter is not only one of the brightest students in our class, he is also constantly challenging the various concepts and theories being presented, which secures an interesting learning environment. I can highly recommend Peter - both as a great fellow student, a close friend and I am confident that his professional skills make him a great and valued colleague in any business setting."” May 4, 2009

Director of Finance

AZ Industries SA de CV

As the CFO I was responsible for the finance and administration department of the company. In this function I successfully restructured the capital structure of the company to match more effectively long term and short term funds with long and short term capital needs. I renegotiated established long term credits and short term credit lines and negotiated new short term credit lines with very favourable conditions. In addition, I managed the company’s working capital and decreased the overall cash conversion cycle, thus decreasing the company’s cost of capital and increasing the profitability and the value for the shareholders. Besides that, I prepared the monthly reporting to the CEO & President of the company and supervised the whole export of our products.

Furthermore I was co-leading the development of a proprietary portfolio management software and client relationship database.
