Portrait of Peter Doyle

Peter Doyle

Peter Doyle is a former global account director in the software industry, who after retiring in Anglesea in 2009 with his wife Desi, decided his decades of experience in high-level business strategy could be put to good use in community projects. This included an initiative to build Scottish-style coastal rowing boats with Geelong’s refugee and CALD communities in 2017. His goal was to bring together that city’s many cultures in a way that was highly visible to the broader community and showed the rich resource of skill and experience that refugee and CALD communities bring to Geelong’s commercial and cultural makeup. The result was also community ties that continue to endure.
