Peter Cook

Assistant Vice President, Commercial Financing

Partner. Precedent setter. Go getter.

Peter has been a part of the First National Financial commercial team for the past 26 years, and has originated more than $4 billion in commercial financing.

For Peter, obstacles are opportunities – to take smart risks, to deepen relationships, to set precedents and to, ultimately, deliver seamlessly.

Peter has a formula that, for him, stands the test of time. Invest in relationships. Build knowledge of your client. Communicate openly and always. Figure out how to collaborate. For him, those four principles are what contribute to quick, simple and seamless deals.

Working at First National, Peter feels encouraged to take smart risks and pursue the hard deals that most would discard. The values of speed and accountability have allowed him to create a standard in delivery – 48 hours for a letter of interest for any deal.
