Peter Engelbert

Small Business Program

‘I was previously a member of TEC before I sold my business. I enjoyed sharing the challenges with other business people. Becoming a Chair has filled the need. TEC is a place to share ideas, grow as a person and spend time with like-minded people.’


Peter Engelbert is an operational specialist in both local and international businesses and takes this experience and passion for building successful businesses and effective leaders into his role as a TEC Chair.

His career started as a chemical engineer and over a decade worked in food, pharmaceutical, building materials and FMCG industries. Then in 1998 Peter developed and established Woodchem Australia, a chemical plant. In the space of 5 years built sales in excess of $35 million with staff of 30 and a market share of 25%. He sold the business in 2007 to Carter Holt Harvey (sales in 2007 were $35 million, EBITDA was $4 million.)

Peter moved into another C-level role with a start-up business, developing a new technology for the fiberglass composite space. During this time he provided mentoring expertise to companies such as: Fine Fettle – Food manufacturer and marketer; Sapphari Management Systems – Management consulting; Restek – Technical consulting; Schroeder Australia – Medical supplier; Interclean Australasia – Cleaning supplier.

Extensive business experience has given  Peter insights into the challenges of building businesses from the ground up along with ownership issues that are often hidden from corporate employees. This unique mix allows him to take the best of both worlds; the entrepreneurship from small business and the systems and structure of corporations.
