As Chief Executive of Hoyts Cinemas (1988-1999), Peter grew the company from a small cinema chain with 40 theatres in Australia to a global business with over 2,000 theatres operating in 12 countries. The value of the company increased from $40m in 1982 to $1.3billion in 1999, when it was sold to Kerry Packer's Consolidated Press group.

Peter now manages his own diversified investment company, Ivany Investment Group (IIG). As an active public speaker Peter has been invited to address a diverse range of audiences including corporate groups, business leaders, universities and community associations.
His keynote presentations cover entertainment and media, including convergence and new media and time management, entrepreneurship, venture capital and reconstruction of distressed businesses through adversity.
