Peter started his career in the information technology field in 1987 when he went to the U.S. from Sweden to work at Microsoft Corporation. During his 10 year career at Microsoft, he worked on a variety of projects, both as an individual contributor as well as manager of teams of up to 400 people. Throughout his career he focused on international business challenges. He has a degree in Mathematics, with minors in Programming and Economics from the University of Uppsala, Sweden. He is active in various non-profits in Seattle with a focus on helping the poor as well as on technology.
He is currently the chair of the board of Npower Seattle, a non-profit whose mission is to help other non-profits better use technology to achieve their missions. He is also a partner at Social Venture Partners in Seattle. Heading up the Technology Centre is something of a dream job for Peter, as it allows him to combine his interests in appropriate use of technology with a poverty alleviation focus on a global level. His responsibility in the technology centre is to drive the strategy, oversee all the projects, and establish appropriate partnerships.
