Before his retirement in 2010 Peter Giese has been a highly experienced accountant and auditor with over 40 years of dealing with accounting, tax and legal affairs for large corporate entities across Germany as well as in the international arena.
A founding member 19 years ago of his local Rotary club in Detmold-Oerlinghausen, north-western Germany, Peter has also been responsible at Club/District and now at Multi District level for the German Youth Exchange Short Term Program and at Club level for Group Study Exchanges (GSE). His commitment to the furthering of young people’s education and minds is a priority and this can be seen in his continuing responsibility for organising short-term exchanges with Asian countries, in particular with Taiwan, for school and university age students all over Germany.
In 2009, Peter led a team of young German professionals from his Rotary district 1900 to Florida in the USA as part of the GSE exchange programme.
Now retired, Peter and his British wife, Binny, divide their time between their 5 children
and 10 grandchildren in Germany and England.
