A respectable name in the world of business, Peter K.McMahon is well known for being the CEO of the retail store company, ‘Shopko,’ which is based in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin, USA. An authority on supply chain management, Peter is one of the veteran CEOs. And while Peter made a name for himself in the world of business, his wife, Dana Perino, chose journalism. Dana Perino is an American political commentator and author who served as the twenty-sixth White House Press Secretary. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Peter K. McMahon.
Peter K. McMahon was born on June 6, 1954, in Blackpool, Lancashire, United Kingdom. Born and raised in Lancashire, Peter has not revealed much about his early life, and details on his parents and siblings remain a secret. After graduating from a local high school in Lancashire, Peter enrolled at the University of Liverpool. He graduated in 1976 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and management.
Following his time at the University, Peter took on several odd jobs in the field of his study. Things changed for Peter when he was appointed as the director of Sailsbury’s in 1992. He served in the post until 2002 in several areas including Northern England, Ireland, and Scotland.
After calling time on his career at Sailbury’s, Peter joined Tesco as the company’s Central European office and the supply chain director. After two years at Tesco, Peter changed things off and started working at Walmart in 2004. He flew to Germany to take up the position but later moved to Canada and started working as the CEO of Loblaw Companies Limited. After a seven-year stay at Loblaw, Peter decided to pursue his endeavors and started, Shopko. He currently serves as the CEO and president of the company, a position that he has occupied since 2013.
Dana and Peter first met on a flight in 1997, which was headed toward Chicago. While Dana had remained single for quite a while until that point, Peter had already been divorced two times. In an interview with the Hudson Union Society, Dana revealed that she had a little conversation with God after meeting Peter. While she was attracted to Peter, she was not sure whether their age difference would work. The pair ended up chatting throughout the flight and exchanged contacts. They began dating soon after and Peter proposed to Dana in front of Washington Cathedral. But Dana waited until their anniversary to give Peter the answer. Talking about their early days, Peter revealed,
“Well I didn’t expect an answer in that moment anyway – it was kind of partly in jest. On the year anniversary of us meeting, Dana gave me a letter, and the letter told me how much she loved me, how much she’d enjoyed her time in the UK, how much she’d enjoyed being with me, and then at the end she said, ‘Yes, I will marry you.’… It’s love.”
The pair tied the knot in 1998 in his hometown of Blackpool, United Kingdom. In the years as a married couple, the pair have no kids of their own.
They pair live in Manhattan, New York City, with their dog, Jasper. In a bizarre incident, Peter had to spend a day in jail after he failed to pay the $25 fine on time for walking his dog, Henry, without a leash. Peter was arrested for a day and was released later.
