A little bit about my background


Peter joined Barker Business Brokers as a childcare sales specialist. Having an intimate understanding of your business, what a difficult decision selling can be, from your relationships with staff, parents and children to the commitment you have made to build a community of learning that you can be proud of. 


Now, having made your decision you will want to sell your business through someone who has been through the process themselves, understands the high level of confidentiality involved and knows the market place well. Finding a buyer who will carry on your legacy and care for your staff while also achieving the best price possible. 


With a changing ECE landscape, including record numbers of new centres opening, shortages of quality staff, pressure on parent fees and increasing rents, now is an excellent time to sell, and Barker Childcare Sales has a large list of buyers waiting to find a centre like yours.


Peter has an extensive background in the childcare sector. This includes previously being an owner of a large childcare centre in Auckland and one of the founding shareholders and Directors of ECE Astute (now Astute Education), possibly the largest childcare consultancy firm in the country. While at ECE Astute, Peter sold childcare centres in Auckland, Hamilton, Palmerston North and Wellington on behalf of his clients.


Over the past few years, Peter has continued assisting childcare operators in preparing their businesses for sale, improving operational efficiencies and acting in the area of acquisitions for a significant national childcare operator.


Prior to entering the ECE sector Peter spent 20 years in finance including twelve years in the corporate sector as a senior manager in banking and insurance.
