Chief Executive Officer - Peter Skillern

Peter is a man of many talents. He was the TFGA’s policy and advocacy manager for two years before taking on the mantle of CEO, and was instrumental in brokering many wins for Tasmanian farmers during that time.

Peter has had an extensive career in banking and senior managerial roles and specialises in finance and corporate governance. He has managed a group of family companies involved in construction, property development and agriculture. In a wide-ranging career he has also held executive posts with both Environment Tasmania and the Liberal Party.

When he’s not dressed in a suit, attending countless meetings and hassling three tiers of government, Peter also runs a prime lamb property at Campania. He is just as comfortable on his tractor in work boots and hi-vis gear, as he is wandering the halls of parliament; and has experienced first-hand many of the trials and tribulations that face Tasmanian farmers.
