Peter is Chairman and Chief Executive of Engine, having conceived and executed the WCRS buyout from Havas in 2004.
Peter has spent more than 25 years in the advertising industry. His formative years were with Ogilvy and Mather: he opened the Scottish operation in 1973. He was a co–founder of Wight Collins Rutherford Scott in 1979 and subsequently oversaw group development from flotation in 1983 through to re–positioning the company as Europe’s largest media buying group — Aegis. He remained Chairman and CEO until 1992. Prior to leading the buyout of WCRS from Havas, Peter pursued interests outside the media and marketing services sector: along with his wife Jan, he dedicated much of his time to fundraising for various children’s charities.
