Prior to joining Global ESG, Pete worked 19 years for a leading Third-Party Provider.

Between his outgoing personality, desire to go above and beyond the call of duty, and thoughtful problem-solving: Pete is uniquely qualified to meet his clients’ needs as well as assisting top talent to attain their own individual career objectives.


Working with Pete has been a great experience. I applied for the position with [client] and Pete called me immediately to discuss my background and next steps in the process. With each step, I was kept informed and Pete made sure I had a complete understanding of what was expected.

Prior to the interview, Pete set up a call to give me background on the individuals that I would be meeting with along with tips to make sure I was successful. As soon as he had feedback, he called to pass it along.

A few days prior to all interviews with [client] being completed, I was given an offer from another company. I called Pete and he informed [client], all while keeping me updated as to their progress. When it came down to the end, it was crunch time in order for [client] to put together an offer. His main focus that afternoon was getting it completed with the best overall package for me.

I am very excited to be starting with [client]. It probably wouldn’t have happened without all of Pete’s hard work!

Thanks for everything!

- S.W., Controller, Candidate
