Peter Bingle

Peter has been a senior figure in the public affairs industry for more than twenty years. He has advised many of the leading corporates and trade associations on their dealings with government. These include BAE Systems, McDonald’s, Rolls-Royce, Permira, HSBC, Clifford Chance, BNFL, Camelot, Vickers, L’Oreal, National Grid and Provident Financial. Peter has always adopted a high profile stance on industry matters and has written extensively on the subject in the national and trade media.

In his youth Peter was a Tory councillor on Wandsworth (1982-1990) holding a number of senior positions including housing and social services chairman. After eight years he retired from public life at the age of thirty.

Peter’s greatest love outside of politics and his family is the music of Wagner.
