A leader with strong business acumen
The Austrian is lead by CEO, Peter “The Austrian” Hager.
Austrian born Peter, who is affectionately known as ‘Peter – The Austrian’ to his friends and family, began his successful business career as the owner of a sought-after exclusive establishment in Vienna’s old town, or ‘Wiener Innenstadt‘.
With a passion for innovation and personal growth, Peter left Austria to explore the world. He found himself in South Africa and relishing in a career change, immersing himself in the world of commercial deep sea diving.
Working in this dangerous but personally fulfilling industry taught Peter many life and business skills. He gained a sharpened mental toughness, greater ability to focus under pressure and superior communication skills, as well as earning him a Diploma of Marine Mechanical Engineering, a Commercial Deep Sea Diving License (Oil & Gas) and a Higher Diploma from the British Safety Council.
Next Challenge: Fatherhood
Being a father to Jerome is a constant source of inspiration for Peter.
Finding himself in Australia, Peter moved onto the challenge that would change his life, experiencing the joy of parenthood when he welcomed his son Jerome into his life.
Being a father to Jerome is a constant source of inspiration for Peter, and his obligation to the future generations as a father is at the core of his passion for using solar energy to cut greenhouse emissions and reduce air pollution.
The Road To Solar Power Entrepreneur
Peter settled into a career in sales and marketing, a role which set him on his path to supplying quality domestic solar power systems in New South Wales.
After spending 5 years operating in marketing, finance and sales roles, Peter noticed the tangible advantages of solar power and was impressed with the way solar energy technologies harnessed the sun’s energy to provide cheaper energy solutions naturally.
Peter began to research the best performing solar panels for home and business use and having obtained a superior knowledge of the Australian solar power solar panels industry and the solar energy products on the market, his entrepreneurial skills kicked in.
Knowing he could supply consumers with top quality solar panels and high-efficiency solar energy systems that save money and help reduce air pollution, Peter established his business The Austrian.
Peter looks forward to helping you with a high-quality solar energy system that best suits your needs.
