Peter has been a Director at Vera since January 2017, initially based in Cape Town before transitioning to Washington, D.C. in March 2018. Utsav became a Director in June 2017 after two years with the Mumbai consulting team.
“Both Peter and Utsav have been instrumental in developing and shaping Vera’s global consulting division in recent years and collectively driving the company’s success across Africa, Asia, and the Americas,” says Kaufman. “We are immensely proud of the work they’ve done so far and eager to see the impact they’ll make in this next phase of Vera’s growth.”
Peter came to Vera with more than six years of management experience in the development space. Colleagues say Peter leads by example, citing his critical thinking skills, deep-rooted values, sprightly sense of humor, and consistent enthusiasm for Vera’s work. “Peter isn’t afraid to make tough decisions or ask the important questions that ultimately make Vera a stronger partner for our clients and better place to work for our employees,” says Gordon.
