Dr. PETER SUMMERSIDE

PhD in Theoretical (Solid State) Physics (ANU), B.Sc (1st Class Honours)(UOW)

After completing his PhD in theoretical Physics he published some 12 research papers in international journals over a five year period, a testament to his exceptional analytical skills.

He then made a drastic move and transitioned into the corporate world. This transition proved easy for Peter as his skills set was well implemented at Bridgestone Australia Ltd where he was employed for over 22 years in a senior position; the position of Computing Systems Manager for over 17 years, and then Business Integration Manager for the remaining 6. Peter was in charge of overseeing and implementing the rollout of several new systems within the company, as well as the standardisation of existing systems. He conceived, designed, developed and implemented Fleet Management system which created a competitive advantage for Bridgestone. Peter is now retired from the corporate world but still puts his knowledge and skills to good use by undertaking such roles as an ECS® Advisory Board member.
