Peter RowlesChief Executive Officer
Peter Rowles is more heavily invested in Cape than just being its CEO, he’s a part founder of the business.
In 1983, Peter founded the company Underground Services Australia, servicing the gas sector. Peter has always been a very hands-on leader, and grew the business by working in the field. In 1988, he expanded the business into the water sector, and then incorporated power in 1990. The company grew from strength to strength, as did Peter’s knowledge and hands-on experience. Peter and Underground Services Australia came onto the radar of the CFC Group in 1997 as it was looking to diversify and expand.
In 2009, CFC took full control of Peter’s company. He remained at its helm to assist with its transition into the group through 2010. Six years later, Peter was lured back to head the company.
