In between drafting ASX announcements and strategic communication plans for clients, Cannings Purple’s Director of Investor Relations, Peter Klinger, takes a break to tell us who he is when he’s not working.
In our ‘Purple Conversations’ series, you’ll find out about the Cannings Purple team – what led them to their careers; what they do in their spare time and even what their favourite apps are.
Meet Peter Klinger
Peter is a highly-skilled communicator and communications strategist with a proven track record of devising communication strategies and writing high-quality reports, thought leadership pieces and mission/values statements for a range of clients.
Peter boasts more than 20 years’ experience in daily financial journalism, accrued across titles including The West Australian, The Times (London) and Australian Financial Review.
Peter has always had a passion for writing — from keeping holiday diaries to editing his high school journal — so it was a no-brainer for him to pursue a career in journalism that, post-university, began at the century-old daily newspaper, Kalgoorlie Miner. Outside of work and apart from his family, Peter is a member of a multi-premiership winning team of life-long hockey players whose skills seem to improve with every post-match beer.
