Peter's professionalism and enthusiasm for the work he does is contagious and it is a true pleasure to work with him."

He has helped lead a transformation that will be critical for our company’s growth. Fitlife is now positioned as a powerful e-commerce player for years to come and we have Peter to thank for that."

Peter brought a fresh a set of eyes and enormous enthusiasm to our challenge of understanding and operationalizing customer lifetime value. His deep direct marketing knowledge coupled with executive perspective helped us clarify the big picture and connect the details to achieve this."

"Peter is one of the strongest direct marketers I have ever met. When Peter and Interactive Search Holdings were my clients back in 2001 it became clear that his creative yet sophisticated approach to customer acquisition was the driving force behind the tremendous success of their toolbar business. More recently Peter was a mentor/advisor for two New York DreamIt start-ups last summer, both who found his guidance invaluable. I am looking forward to his participation in DreamIt again this year and I would highly recommend Peter to anyone doing business online."
- Mark Wachen, CEO / Founder, Upstage Ventures

The insight Peter provided exceeded expectations and has provided a framework for which we are basing our new plans. Through sophisticated consumer awareness research, Peter provided us with compelling data and his corresponding insight. I would highly recommend Peter to any company marketing products or services directly to consumers."
- Bobby Davidorf, Strategic CFO for Startups, Burkland Associates

"Peter is an extraordinarily gifted executive. He has a vast and always-updated awareness of the technical advances being made so rapidly. He is an executive who know tech as opposed to a techie who is learning to become an exec. His strengths include strategic thinking, leadership and team building. Also of note is that Peter is bilingual: he speaks techie AND English. A really worthwhile guy."
- Richard Randall, Board Member, P&F Industries

"Peter is an extremely talented direct marketer and internet star. I worked with Peter while we were building the Smiley Central toolbar business for ISH (acquired by Ask in 2004). Peter was running the customer acquisition process in its entirety, which was a well-oiled money-making machine. I'd highly recommend finding a way to get Peter on your side."
- Tim Ogilvie, Internet Entrepreneur
