Peter Clinton

Director US Sales

 As a native of South Africa, Peter grew up in both a wine making and a wine consuming culture.  After his mandatory service in the South African military, Peter followed in his father’s footsteps and studied architecture at Wits Technicon in Johannesburg, graduating in 1994.

After graduation, Peter went to work for Little and Associates, an architecture firm in Charlotte, NC.  Peter worked at Little and Associates for approximately a year before his passion for food and wine, coupled with his desire to own and operate his own business, led him to search out other opportunities.

Starting from scratch, Peter built a successful US import business, focusing on wines from his native South Africa.  Peter was intimately involved in every aspect of his business, learning about all the varied aspects of importing and selling wines in the very complicated US market as he progressively expanded his business.

Peter worked with Banks Channel as a sales consultant during 2011 and agreed to join Banks Channel in January 2012 as the Manager of the US business.  Peter is married and lives by the water in the Lake Norman, NC area with his wife and young son, Gabriel.  When not busy with work or family, Peter is an avid bicyclist.
