ABOUT Peter Cooke

Peter’ began his career farming in the Great Southern of WA in the mid ‘70s, which led to his appointment as CEO of grower-based organisation, the Kondinin Group, from 1988-97.

The business has a reputation for bringing clarity and depth of thinking to complex strategic situations and for identifying viable strategic pathways that will build long-term value.

With 20 years of consultancy work and an understanding of both the financial and regulatory sides of doing business, Peter is well equipped to deal with the challenges that come with managing agricultural projects.
