Pete who is the founder and CEO of Social Retail Group! Pete founded SRG on 4th July 2008, this day was deliberately picked as he wanted it to be his own independence day where he could build a new and exciting business.
Pete's favourite part of his job is helping clients see the ROI of social media and also giving young people the opportunity of professional work experience.
In Pete's spare time he writes songs, teaches and plays guitar. Alongside Social Retail Group Pete has also founded a music education charity for 11-18yr olds in his home town of Reading, called Reading Rock Academy.
Above is a photo of Pete busking on the streets of Reading with his loop pedal.
