What Do You Enjoy Most About Working at KAR:
The people and culture are what attracted Peter to KAR. Everyone is collegial, hardworking and genuine—things you don’t typically find in most organizations. Being around his colleagues, especially during periods of long hours and high stress, makes it all that worthwhile.
What Are You Involved in Outside of Work:
Outside of work, Peter enjoys spending time with family. He has two young children and keeping tabs on them can literally be a full-time job. Collectively, they enjoy traveling to explore new cities and cuisines. Aside from spending time with family, Peter enjoys cooking, golfing, and cycling on the road bike—usually somewhere along PCH—or taking a class with Alex Toussaint on his Peloton.
