K-Club Breakfast Speaker – 27th June 2019
VP / Global Operations Manager, Investment Banking
A husband, father to 2 boys, triathlete and avid Newcastle United fan, Pete fills the remainder of his time balancing a career in Investment Banking with running the 10,000 Donors campaign; raising awareness of and recruiting donors to, the global stem cell register.
Pete spent 12 years in London running business units for Goldman Sachs and Bank of America. He moved to the North West 5 years ago when asked to migrate a number of Operations functions to Chester and India.
2 years ago he was diagnosed with blood cancer.
This was the catalyst for the creation of 10000donors.com. The aim was to get 10,000 new stem cell donors registered to the global list. That target was achieved in 5 months and to date, over 26,000 new donors have been added and, more importantly, 5 of those donors have been called up to save the life of a cancer patient.
A new target of 100,000 has been set which – when achieved – will be increased again until stem cells are available to us all, as aspirin.
K-Club Breakfast Event – Thursday 27th June 2019, 7.30am-10am at the AJ Bell Stadium, 1 Stadium Way, Salford, M30 7LJ.
