Peter Batt


Peter is the Divisional Managing Director for the south for the Co-operative Group, as well as being a trustee of both ECT School and St Francis Hospice. Peter has been fortunate to have led a fantastic life and would like to give back to the community to help others do the same.

Peter is enthusiastic about providing young people with training and development from an early age, and believes education and supporting and nurturing the next generation is critical to this. Being a trustee provides him with the opportunity to ask questions and develop different ways of thinking where the students are at the heart of all the trust’s decision making.

ECT will make a fundamental difference to the lives of young people, helping to develop their confidence and providing them with a clear direction which will enable them to become the best versions of themselves in a safe and growing environment.

Peter and the other trustees’ role is to enable young people and colleagues to feel they are trusted and equipped to develop at their own pace and with the appropriate infrastructure behind them. Peter is truly excited by the potential and opportunities being provided and will endeavour to provide a lasting legacy for many years to come in the most progressive of environments.

Peter is married to Sam and has two children, Oliver, 12, and Alexandra, 9. Peter lives in Essex and his favourite pastimes are watching sports, horse racing being his favourite, and listening to 80s music, in particular, the new romantics!
