After obtaining his grammar school diploma, Peter first worked for around three years in the transport world before beginning a study at the Rotterdam Mainport University to become a Maritime Officer. After gaining his Bachelor’s degree (B MO), he worked as a maritime officer at Jo Tankers on very advanced ocean-going tankers transporting chemical products.
In 2007 he entered employment as a surveyor with Marinco Survey, Touw and Binnendijk Bree, where he was trained for a period of five years to become a skilled expert in the field of condition surveys and damage assessment.
In 2012 he joined Verschoor & Bras as a maritime surveyor. After the company acquired Marinco Survey in 2013, Peters extensive knowledge of condition surveys turned out to be very valuable. Peter is currently following a programme to become a registered surveyor (NIVRE).
