About Peter

Peter is the leader of McKinsey's Asia–Pacific (APAC) Semiconductor Practice, where he serves Japanese, Chinese, and Western semiconductor and technology companies. In addition to working on strategy and operational issues, he has supported a number of corporate-finance engagements focusing on M&A and joint-venture development.

His recent semiconductor and high-tech experience includes helping a leading Chinese technology manufacturer structure and execute a manufacturing joint venture with a Taiwanese firm, and supporting a major global high-tech manufacturer as it restructured its product development, marketing and branding, and call-center operations. In Japan, he has guided a leading Japanese high-tech manufacturer in identifying and capturing cost-reduction opportunities across its hardware portfolio and counseled an OAIT company on building and launching a teleweb channel in China.

Peter's work extends to companies outside the semiconductor and high-tech sector, including growth strategy and operational-improvement initiatives at media and pharmaceutical firms.

Peter has immersed himself in Asian culture, working from several of McKinsey's offices in Asia. He speaks fluent Japanese, Mandarin, and Thai.
