Peter4Strategy: Navigating strategy and change to drive your business forward

Leveraging a unique blend of extensive hands-on global operational experience with sharp and creative strategic consulting skills, I serve as an effective partner in strategy and change. Effective because of my fast, fact-driven, team-oriented approach, always with pragmatic outcomes in mind.

Leveraging my coaching, facilitating, and communication skills, I rapidly challenge groupthink, creating innovative, out-of-the-box solutions and fostering a new team-based drive, all while translating these into pragmatic implementations.

With over 30 years of experience in global B2B industries, like chemicals, oil/gas, and materials, and 5 years at a top consulting firm, I offer a rare mix of insight and expertise. My direct experience in supporting and challenging three CEOs and their teams through turbulent times underpins my deep understanding of leadership support at the highest levels.

Since founding Peter4Strategy early 2020, I have been committed to empowering organizations on their journey towards strategic growth, M&A success, and the integration of sustainable business practices. My expert partnership and guidance are tailored to navigate the complexities of modern business landscapes, ensuring your strategy not only responds to today's challenges but also paves the way for tomorrow's opportunities.

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, but rather, that which is most adaptable to change.” (often stated as from Darwin, but actually from Louisiana State University business professor Leon C. Megginson)

About Peter Gommers: A catalyst for strategic growth and transformation

People that know me describe me as a dynamic individual with a robust track record in strategy, M&A, marketing, and sales. I have worked in global, complex, ambiguous organizational settings, generating creative strategies and action plans for innovation and change. My engaging leadership and transparent communication style resonate across diverse, multinational teams.

For over 30 years, I've successfully navigated operational and corporate challenges, leading restructuring, integration, and growth challenges across commodity, specialty, and B2B markets. These experiences span industries from surfactants to personal care, from commodity inorganic chemicals to catalysts, and from adhesives and thickeners for building, to consumer paint, illustrating my versatility and depth of knowledge.

My educational background, with a PhD in Biotechnology/Chemical Engineering from Delft University of Technology and an MBA from INSEAD, bridges technical expertise with a top tier business education. I have had the honor to work for operating companies like Shell, Corn Product Company, Gist Brocades (now DSM), AkzoNobel and Nouryon. I also worked several years for McKinsey & Co, with advisory engagements with major consultancy firms and financial institutions like banks and private equity houses.
