Born in London to an English father and an Austrian mother, Richard grew up switching between English and German and is a native speaker of both. Having studied German and Spanish at Oxford University, he now speaks a total of eight languages – and is the proud holder of a yodelling diploma – thanks to an international career, extensive travel around the world and time spent living and working in a number of countries.

With several years of experience working for major companies and organisations, including eight years in the energy industry, Richard thoroughly understands various business perspectives and the many aims of corporate communications. Richard Peters is delighted that his role at BVIW gives him the opportunity to combine this experience with his language talents and intercultural skills on a daily basis through a wide variety of fascinating international projects.
