Corporate Trainer - Peter Letcher
Peter Letcher

Peter is Eagle Training’s new Business Development Manager. He is a recent addition to the team but has the advantage of being one of our first-ever sponsors while in his role as Sales and Operations Director at Orwell Trucks, a successful and award-winning Mercedes-Benz truck and van franchise. This gives Peter a unique perspective as being a member of the Eagle team and an end-user!

In his career, most of which has been in the motor industry, Peter has been a dedicated professional with a proven track record in the management of multisite Dealership activities; thriving on leadership, decision making and people development. His many achievements and successes have been underpinned by adhering to 3 basic principles:

  • Attention to detail
  • Get it right at the front end
  • A back to basics approach

This consistent approach, honesty and utmost integrity have been central to his way of working.

Peter actually retired in 2016, but could not resist the challenge that we offered him. Not being one to sit around, Peter also volunteers for a number of organisations including the Coastal Accessible Transport Services (CATS), Suffolk Police and the Prince’s Trust.

His volunteering roles include driving a minibus, driving the elderly to hospital appointments, shopping and ‘mystery’ trips. His duties with Suffolk Police include working with both new recruits and experienced officers, participating in role plays/interviewing skills as part of their training and ongoing development programmes. His participation in role-plays allows him to swear at the Police!

Peter is a mentor for the Prince’s Trust and works with young people to help them write CV’s, job applications and preparing them for interviews. He also works with young entrepreneurs with new business ideas or who have just started a business providing support and guidance on developing and/or expanding their businesses.

However, it is his vast skills and experience in the sales environment that made Peter an easy choice for us when it came to identifying someone to take the role in business development. His core values align with ours and also his desire and ambition to make a difference to both Eagle Training and our clients
