Peter Kinchley


Chicago Headquarters

I have always had a passion for exploring things, people, and ideas that are commonly overlooked and taken for granted. With a background in business strategy, I get excited by the opportunity to turn new-to-the-world products, services, and experiences into financially viable businesses.

I joined Doblin after business school and working in strategy consulting. Every day I am amazed by the power of our diverse teams to understand our clients’ customers at a deep level, design compelling ways to serve their needs, and turn these ideas into profitable businesses that make real change in the world.

Having worked across multiple industries, I have a special appreciation for tackling gnarly problems already well thought-over, and bringing fresh thinking to overcome established constraints and orthodoxies. Learning the rules, and then breaking them, has been a routine that I regularly enjoy on Doblin projects.
