As an accomplished TPS coach, Peter has gained experience throughout the world helping businesses increase their understanding and application of continuous improvement and problem solving. Always hands on, he’s not afraid to get his hands dirty, but more importantly, focuses on engaging shop floor personnel and process owners while testing ideas.
While leveraging the skills and experiences of those around him, Peter creates “win-win” situations when implementing ideas, rather than the traditional consultant version of “givers and receivers of kaizen”.
While understanding that data drives decision making (taking the guesswork out of the process), Peter constantly emphasizes the importance of the human touch.
Most recently, Peter working within Magna Seating (a division of Magna International) helping to build their global continuous improvement team, through a combination of “showing” and “coaching” with over 10 kaizen leaders and dozens of kaizen members around the world (with a focus in Canada, United States, Europe, Mexico and South America).
To complement his extraordinary TPS / continuous improvement experience and knowledge, Peter is a certified Professional Engineer, holding multiple US Patents. Other talents include part and machine design, program management, as well as significant experience in the heavy equipment industry.
Peter graduated from Carleton University with a Bachelor of Engineering (BEng), Mechanical Engineering.
