About me

Peter leads Business Development for Medical Devices at Johnson & Johnson in the Asia Pacific region.  He focuses his time on exploring new innovation and partnerships with companies and institutions that align with J&J’s Medical Device strategy.

Peter joined Johnson & Johnson in Australia in 2010 where he played a pivotal role in shaping strategy and leading a performance-based culture across commercial teams in J&J’s General Surgery business. Having always been curious about healthcare innovation, Peter switched to Business Development, moving to the United States, and led a number of external partnership opportunities in the digital and AI healthcare markets.

Since returning to Asia Pacific, Peter has cultivated strong relationships with startup and investment communities across the region and is excited about what the Asia Pacific Medical Device innovation landscape holds over the next decade.

Peter holds an MBA from Macquarie Graduate School of Management (MGSM), Graduate Diploma in Applied Finance and Investment from FINSIA and a Bachelor of Economics from The University of Sydney.
