Several years ago Peter started to study the Spanish Real Estate industry and has made significant investments in this field since 2013 having identified, at that time, that the fall in property prices was reaching an end. He is now happy to share the knowledge and expertise he has acquired with new investors into the market.
Peter has several other business interests including ownership of hotels and other properties in Spain, Germany, the UK and the Far East.
Peter is a keen sportsman and took up long distance running in 2005, since when he has run nearly 80 marathons and hundreds of other races, personally raising in excess of $300,000 for his favourite charities.
Peter has been an active advocate of good practice in the vacation ownership industry in which the Hutchinson Group has operated for many years and was one of the founding board members of the European Resort Development Organisation (RDO), being co-author of their first Code of Ethics. He values ethical practice as being paramount in achieving the longevity from which his companies have benefitted and applies these principles to all his business dealings.
