Meet Our Team
President / CEO & Owner
It is fitting that Peter came to lead St. Clement’s Castle as its President / CEO & Owner in January 2022. His family roots are in Donegal, Ireland, a country with more castles per capita than any place in the world. While his career began in commercial banking, assessing companies’ health and growth potential, he knew he belonged on the other side of the table. In January 2009, he started a clean energy company, Lantern Energy, serving both residential and commercial customers in Connecticut and Massachusetts. Based in Glastonbury, it continues to thrive as the top ranked Energy Service Company (ESCO) in the state. Peter brings his innate entrepreneurial drive to St. Clements, where he is always seeking ways to raise the bar to deliver a top shelf experience, from the food to the grounds, to the decor and the service. Whether a corporate or social occasion, or the big wedding day, he is dedicated to leading the St. Clements’ team to ensure your event is executed with exceptional quality and care.
While off the clock, Peter can be found relaxing at his home on Lake Pocotopaug with his 90-pound yellow lab, Finn – named after a legendary Irish warrior Finn McCool.
