Speaker Profile: Peter Armstrong – Mitton Electronet General Manager
A chartered engineer, Peter has spent his practicing career focused primarily around technical and commercial leadership roles in the renewable power space, particularly wind and solar energy. Peter has worked on projects around the world, before joining Mitton ElectoNet in March 2015, where he is the General Manager.
Peter brings a focus on commercial team leadership, project management and the importance of relationships in business. “For me, it is so important to be open with our clients, and to ultimately make sure we do what we said we would.” says Peter.
After opening himself up to the potential disruptions that current and future technologies would have on his company and the industry at large, he decided to be a part of future.
Throwing himself – and his team – into the different physical and digital tools available, Peter dedicated resources to researching and implementing new ways to do business – including the use of VR and AI.
The results have catapulted Mitton ElectroNet into a bright future, where they don’t have to worry about change, they have already embraced it and are now considered at the forefront of their industry.
Outside of work, Peter can be found running long distances around the Port Hills or exploring New Zealand with his wife and two children in their little four-seater aeroplane.
