Business Development Director, Plextek
Peter Doig joined Plextek in July 2013 as a Business Development Consultant covering the Defence and Security markets. In September 2019, he was promoted to Business Development Director for Plextek’s growing Defence Technology Solutions (DTS) business unit. Peter’s enthusiasm for defence and security stems from his technical background, having achieved a First Class Honours Degree in Physics and Computer Science from the University of Liverpool. Peter began his business career as a Software Engineer at a computer games company before carving his way into the defence industry in 2001 as a Systems Engineer at Textron Systems Electronic Systems UK. Having spent four years working on EW research programmes, Peter then developed embedded software for Defensive Aids Systems test equipment. In 2006, Peter moved into Business Development, responsible for securing UK R&D projects, enhancing strategic relationships and sales within the Pacific Rim region. Peter lives in Cambridge with his Croatian wife and 20-month old daughter. When not contemplating who to connect with next on LinkedIn, he enjoys a wide range of sports and WorldTravel - having recently visited Cuba, Japan, Vietnam and Peru.
