About the Speakers

The Hon. Peter Tinley AM MLA is the Western Australian Minister for Housing; Veterans Issues; Youth; Asian Engagement. Minister Tinley will share his views on how Western Australia can business can use the Asian opportunity to invite U.S. Investment in the state.

Peter served 17 of his 25 years in the Army with the Special Air Service Regiment, commanding at every level from a patrol of six to an SAS Sabre Squadron.

In his final appointment as the SAS Chief Operations Officer from 2001 to 2004, Peter developed and executed plans for operations worldwide including East Timor, Christmas Island (Tampa), Afghanistan and Iraq.

Needless to say, his military career saw him amass a range of unique experiences for planning and managing in dynamic high-risk cross-cultural environments. His principal skills are in the areas of strategy and leadership.

In 2003, Peter’s service was recognised with his appointment as a Member of the Order of Australia (AM).

After leaving the SAS, Peter developed a boutique consultation business in leadership and team building servicing a niche demand in corporate Australia using a practical “front of lectern” style. Concurrently he established a small manufacturing business producing building products for the WA and NSW markets using Western Australian limestone.

He stepped down from his business interests in 2009 to re-enter public service as a member of WA’s Parliament, following a successful by-election campaign for the seat of Willagee,

While in Opposition he held positions as WA Labor’s Shadow Minister for Planning, Housing, and Local Jobs as well as Shadow Minister for Asian Engagement, Trade, Science and Lands.

In 2013 he was elected President of the State Labor Caucus and in mid-2014 was elected by a popular vote of members as the President of WA Labor for a two-year term.

Following Labor’s win in the 2017 State Election, Peter was sworn in as the Minister for Housing; Veterans Issues; and Youth on 22 March 2017. In a Cabinet reshuffle on 13 December 2018, the Asian Engagement portfolio was added to his ministerial responsibilities.
