Peter Gow was born in 1952 and spent his formative years in Brisbane and country Queensland.
After finishing school he went on to complete a Bachelor of Accounting at the Queensland University of Technology. He later gained a Masters Degree in Commerce (Marketing) from the University of New South Wales and a Masters Degree in Applied Finance from Macquarie University.
Throughout his career, Peter worked in various roles, including as an auditor for a national stock and station company, a management accountant for a major multinational food manufacturer, a large asset portfolio manager, and a corporate financier with a major bank. His career highlights include setting up three venture capital funds and having opportunities to gain key insights into how very successful companies operate. This enabled him to analyse business performance, understand product profitability and gain an appreciation of the new product development process for both financial and retail products.
Peter is passionate about working with the next generation of successful companies. He established Creative Capital three years ago to advise and work with growing companies. Peter understands the challenges facing business and has discovered that although size and uniqueness may differ, there is some commonality between all businesses. His true expertise lies in his ability to assist businesses to grow, in developing strategies and plans, and in implementing processes to attract more funding.
Today, Peter and his wife, Jann, live in Sydney with their two children. When he’s not working, he loves travelling overseas and riding his Ducati.
