Peter is the driving force behind Empact, the social enterprise he founded in 2011. Peter has become a leader not just within Empact but also in the wider Singaporean social enterprise and charitable community with his innovative thinking and passion to positively impact social organisations.
Under Peter’s leadership, Empact has developed a unique value proposition whereby Empact is able to offer affordable services to social organisations utilising a unique combination of staff and skill-based volunteers. Peter created a ‘shared-services’ platform to provide back-office functions to organisations to improve their efficiencies at a relatively lower cost. Furthermore, Peter advises corporations and grant makers in channelling talent and resources to support the capacity building of social organisations. Under his leadership, Empact has impacted more than 500 not-for-profit organisations and 100 social enterprises.
Since his university days, Peter has dedicated a significant portion of his time working with different sectors to create valuable community engagement programmes and has been an advisor or volunteer to various non-profit organisations. This community spirit was continued into his initial professional career with PricewaterhouseCoopers (“PwC”) where he worked for more than 8 years leaving PwC in the capacity of a Senior Manager.
