Pete is one of six shortlisted in the ‘Professional Services Leadership’ category. The Awards,  which are run by TheBusinessDesk.com, recognise and celebrate the people who are role models within their organisations and raise the bar for their competitors. Those shortlisted have already demonstrated ‘qualities of extraordinary leadership and have been able to demonstrate the positive impact they have had.’

Pete, aged 31, joined DSW from Deloitte in September 2021, three months prior to DSW’s flotation on AIM. As a key member of the leadership team, he oversees daily operations, ensuring efficiency and effectiveness across the organisation whilst fostering collaboration and driving innovation.

With his business development remit, Pete focuses on driving DSW’s growth by identifying new Network members and service line opportunities and forging strategic partnerships. He supports prospective partners to build their business model and, once on board, provides insights to help them execute their strategy.

Pete has also led the development of DSW’s ESG Strategy. He chairs its ESG Committee to oversee and establish DSW’s ESG agenda as a role model to other organisations.

The NW 2024 Leadership Awards will take place on Wednesday, 27 March 2024, at the Midland Hotel in Manchester.

Congratulations to Pete on a well-deserved shortlisting!
