My name is Pete Ziverts.
I'm a career-long writer and communicator with on-the-ground experience across five continents. My primary subject matter expertise is financial services - payments/credit cards, banking - and compliance, with an emphasis on anti-money laundering and state/federal banking regulation. I've also written extensively in many other areas - economics, M&A, corporate governance, education, real estate, technology and health care.
My writing spans interviews, editorials/opinion pieces, by-line thought leadership articles and all types of marketing communications, from news releases to brochures and web copy to corporate advertising. I also have great experience writing in the organizational context and supporting executive communication needs, e.g., organization announcements, strategy communication, speeches, and policies & procedures.
I operate a consultancy focused on writing and communications. Some of my key engagements include CoBank, the largest agricultural lender in the U.S.; Bulkley Capital, an investment banking firm focused on middle market and family owned businesses; and the Daniels College of Business at University of Denver.
Previously, I invested more than two decades in the corporate world with American Express, First Data Corp. and Western Union. I've led global communications teams, but I also have a very useful mix of public/government affairs and regulatory compliance experience, all capped by a two-year - life-changing - assignment in Paris, France.
Professionally, I hold the Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) designation from the Public Relations Society of America. I also am a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS), the most widely recognized certification among AML compliance professionals globally. And I also earned Series 7 and 63 general securities licenses.
