Together they've built the UK's largest franchise consultancy, the world's largest sales and marketing mentoring network for accountants and now along with Rob they are developing one of the world's most successful training, and support businesses for mentors.

Peter has built a wealth of experience spanning some 40 years of working with business owners, mentors, coaches and consultants. He is one of the world's leading authorities on business strategy and is a franchising and licensing expert. 

Other than working on the business, with any spare time, Peter enjoys travelling to watch live sporting events and playing golf with Steve (and beating him!).

He is married to Julie and they have a son, Joshua.
ROB HOGARTH (CO-FOUNDER/BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR)
Rob is Co-Founder of MentorSuccess.com and joined Steve and Peter in 2017.

Rob has worked extensively across Europe and the USA, with both corporate and SME sectors. His experience spans retail, banking, insurance, service providers, manufacturing, telecoms and mobile. Rob has consistently delivered unprecedented growth regardless of product, market or prior knowledge of the sector.

Following a foundation career in sales, he flourished in senior management roles with world leaders Motorola and Sun Microsystems. For example, the latter saw him transform their least successful business unit, which had stagnated at $50M pa into their highest performing by increasing turnover to $320M pa, with over $500M new business, in four years.

Two successful international start-ups in the mobile space followed, before a European leadership role with a US-owned new entrant, where he architected and led record-breaking growth through operations in the UK, Sweden, France, Germany, and Italy; growing revenue from $27M to $98M in three years to establish them market leader, and more than treble the company’s worth. 
 
Away from work, Rob and his wife Karen enjoy European touring holidays which allow him to indulge his passion for classic cars. He has driven more than 300,000 miles outside the UK, and is a particular fan of rural France and Italy.
