Harvey Kaufmann
We worked together  •  Director of Outreach, The Albert Baker Fund. Previously Director, Field Relations and Advancement, Peace Haven Association.
Pete combines his insightful, ecosystem overview (who's at the table / who needs to be / what skin do they have in THIS game) with attention ... to critical details (how will it work / what's needed for each to move forward / how do we get everyone there from here). And he drives it all with an almost insatiable enthusiasm to make it work - and make it work elegantly. He also brings a level of humility that allows him to let go of a piece of his own vision -- if someone else's better serves the unfolding plan. That ames him both a very effective leader as well as a productive team member.

I have worked with Pete directly and have been friends with him since. He is one of my favorite people on the planet. The other day my wife ... and I were talking about who we would invite to dinner with no limitations. I included Pete on my list with Barack Obama. Pete is a unique individual. In addition to being a highly successful and versatile professional he is also an incredible artist and athlete. What really sets him apart from other high achievers, however, is his thoughtful, caring, and generous nature. Pete actively cares about people and goes out of his way to look out for them, even when it is not convenient for him. I witnessed this in his dealings with teammates in difficult work situations and how he interacted with his family during some challenging times that they faced. Pete will be a great entrepreneur because of his creativity and consuming passion and drive to see his visions become a reality. The same passion and creativity will help him build a team. His caring nature will inspire the loyalty required to retain a team through the challenges a young company always faces.

I worked with Pete directly for a few years more than a decade ago and we have been friends since. Pete is once of my favorite people on the ... planet. Recently my wife and I were discussing who, with no limitations, we would invite to a dinner party. Pete was on my list along with Barack Obama. Pete is unique individual. In addition to being a highly successful and versatile professional he is also an incredible artist and athlete. What sets him apart from other high achievers, however, is his caring nature. Pete really cares about people and goes out of his way to help others, even when it is not convenient for him. I witnessed this when Pete was dealing with difficult work situations and also when Pete was working through challenging times with his family. Pete's creativity and drive will make him a great entrepreneur. They will make it possible for him to rally a talented team to help him achieve his vision. His caring nature will help him retain his team during the challenges that all young companies face.
