In 1998 he moved to New Zealand looking for a lifestyle change. After building and selling a successful business in Levin, north of Wellington, Peter left the West Coast to pursue his long standing interest in the financial industry.

Peter is married to Sabine with two adult children, Katharina and Robin. Work and his clients take up most of his time, but he enjoys reading, the arts and his newly found passion for golf.
Managing a retail store while studying in Auckland has given her a real understanding and passion for providing quality service to clients. She has completed extensive specialist training for life and health insurance. Katharina is committed to constantly update her skills to provide her clients with comprehensive insurance solutions for their individual needs.
Her task is to enhance the Milestone North Teams Insurance services with specialist advice. For Milestone Financial Services (North) Limited Katharina’s employment was a logical step: while risk advice is an integral part of financial planning it has become essential for the business to have a dedicated specialist in this area to guarantee the best possible service for clients. Being bilingual, Katharina can deal with our German and New Zealand clients.
