How this Site is Going to Make You More Successful with Your Important Customer Relationships?


relationship-managementThe goal of this site is to help YOU get better engaged with your customer relationships and protect and grow the ones that are key to the future of your business.

 To do this I want to create insightful, relevant and thought provoking content that you can use at work immediately on your own or with a team.

To help me do this, I need feedback, so I encourage you to correspond with me, ask questions and make comments so we can all learn from each other.

I don’t have all the answers,  but in my career, explained below, I do have extensive experience with all types of situations with major international companies and major brands that are household names.

I typically blog once a week and to ensure you don’t miss any vital content you can subscribe via RSS  or e-mail . I have over 100 blogs on the site and when I first started I had a real mix of subjects that were more broad management mixed with relationship engagement subjects. Over the last few months I have focused more on relationship engagement, but you can search my blogs for other content as well.

About Me

About three years ago I established a Consulting company called ConnXN, which specializes in the art and science of truly understanding client needs and connecting in ways that results in added value relationships. What’s different about this? I have a unique approach which identifies and measures the relationships.  I  work with sales and marketing professionals to map, assess, understand and develop ways of making and improving their key connections.

about-peterI started my career with Cadbury-Schweppes in the UK in a sales position having obtained a Business Management Degree at East Hertfordshire University.

I moved to Bahrain with Philip Morris as Area Marketing Director for the Middle East to pioneer new markets and consolidate market leadership. During my stay there for 11 years I re-joined Coca-Cola as Region Marketing Manager to re-introduce Coca-Cola into the Middle East, after its absence of 22 years. I travelled extensively in the Middle East.

In 1993 I moved to Vienna to head up a new Division of The McDonald’s Group and help McDonald’s (Coca-Cola’s No. 1 customer) to build their operations in the Middle East, Africa, and India and throughout Central Europe.  As Vice President, I travelled extensively throughout Central Europe, including Russia, Poland, Hungary, Czech Rep., Romania and Eurasia.

In 2004 I moved to become General Manager of the Munch office for Creata, a premium full service below the line agency. Responsible for Germany, Austria and Central Europe; McDonald’s, Kellogg’s and Coca-Cola were amongst the impressive client list.

In 2008, I moved to Creata’s Chicago office and was appointed Vice President for Global Business Development. In 2011, I was promoted to Senior Vice President responsible for North America Client Services and spearheaded new management initiatives including Strategic Planning & Communications. In 2012, I founded ConnXN.

Born in the UK, and played semi-professional soccer I am the proud father of a son who graduated with a Physics Degree with Honors at Warwick University in the UK.

I re-married and have a gorgeous daughter and a younger son with my lovely American wife Shelley. We currently live in Minnesota.

I follow all sports, especially soccer, tennis and golf. I work hard to keep a newly accomplished 10.7 handicap. I follow the Ryder Cups (attended three) , Super Bowls and Soccer World Cups (attended three), Hong Kong  Rugby Sevens (attended one)

I am very competitive about everything and have problems with tolerance.

I’m working on it!

By the numbers, I’ve visited 80 countries, lived in 13 cities, worked on 6 major brands and am experienced in 3  major business disciplines; Client Servicing, General Management and Brand Management.
