Vice President, Mergers & Acquisitions
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Peter, a Central High School alumni, holds both bachelor’s and master’s Degrees in Business from Temple University. While his family has been in the Italian restaurant business since 1959, after graduating college, Peter opted for a different route and started his journey as an entrepreneur in the group travel business before joining the insurance industry over 20 years ago.
Before joining Savoy in 2009, Peter was Vice President at UnitedHealthcare where he helped lead its entry into the Pennsylvania market. Peter’s extensive experience and knowledge of the Pennsylvania and Greater Philadelphia area made him a driving force in establishing Savoy’s expansion into the Mid-Atlantic region, and under his direction, Savoy has been able to partner with hundreds of brokers in developing new business and creating solutions for their clients.
Peter is responsible for determining and negotiating new revenue and growth sources for Savoy through mergers and acquisitions, strategic relationships and geographical expansion. He also assists in developing marketing growth plans for select top broker partners.
The most rewarding aspect of working at Savoy for Peter is the ability to closely cultivate and mentor his team on industry specifics as well as general sales and business practices. Second only to his own team at Savoy, Peter is a diehard Eagle’s fan and even played football himself, leading the city of Philadelphia in touchdowns scored during his senior year of high school. Finally, Peter just became a first-time grandfather.
