Peter Winterflood

CEO – Beaumont Care

I was born and raised in Brisbane and have spent a large part of my working life in Brisbane as a banker with three years in the UK with Westpac in the late 80s.

After leaving banking 7 years ago I became involved in providing business debt advice firstly with the legal firm of McCullough Robertson, and then as a partner with BDO accountants. It was just after leaving banking that I met Linda and have assisted her ever since with the financing for Beaumont Care with recent highlight being facilitating the acquisition of Roslyn Lodge.

I am married with three adult children, two boys and a girl. The boys live in London and my daughter is a pharmacist at Prince Charles Hospital. My wife Tina teaches English as a second language at a primary school in Inala and at the same time is looking after her elderly mother who is in care at Cazna Gardens at Sunnybank Hills. We now just have a cat and a dog at home in Auchenflower which enables spare time walking and riding my push bike.

I am joining Beaumont Care at an incredibly exciting time as we welcome new quality standards and work our way through the NDIS, as well as witnessing the fast emergence of the new aged care home out of the strawberry, raspberry and pineapple fields in Wamuran.
