His career background is in corporate finance with 17 years experience at Deutsche Bank and Deutsche Craigs in New Zealand. He has a B.Com LL.B (Hons) degree from University of Canterbury.
Peter lives in Auckland and is head of social infrastructure investing at Morrison & Co and a member of the Morrison & Co Management Committee.

His career background is in infrastructure and property investment management with 20 years experience in New Zealand and the United Kingdom. He has BA and BPA degrees from Auckland University and a MSc degree from Cass Business School, London.
The Board has determined that David will be an independent director and, because of his association with Infratil Limited, Peter will be a non-independent director.
