About Me

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 economics, M&A, corporate governance, education, real estate and technology.

My writing spans bylined thought leadership articles, op-eds, interviews, 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 communications needs, e.g., strategy communicationsorganization announcementsspeeches, and policies & procedures documents.

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; Daniels College of Business at University of Denver; and WealthPoint, which provides wealth management and business advisory services.

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, and I also have a practical mix of public/government affairs and regulatory compliance experience, all capped by a two-year - life-changing - assignment in Paris, France.

I earned the Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) designation from the Public Relations Society of America. I am a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS), the most widely recognized certification among AML compliance professionals. And I also earned Series 7 and 63 general securities licenses.
