Peter Freissle is the President / CEO of Polydeck focused on high-level business development. Peter is actively involved in Polydeck's long term business strategy especially Research & Development, and meeting the needs of customers through innovative products and services. Having developed his company into a very successful, multimillion-dollar corporation with over 375 employees in the United States and Latin America, Peter’s philosophy to “care for people in a way that honors God,” is at the forefront of all of his endeavors. Twelve years ago, Peter initiated the first Polydeck Caring Team, designed to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of employees, and to create a culture of caring within the company that all employees are invited to participate in.
This journey brought Peter to start His Way at Work (HWAW)-- a nonprofit organization that aims to inspire and train CEOs to “love their employees as their neighbors,” and develop caring cultures within their company that creates EROI--an “Eternal” Return on Investment. These caring initiatives have influenced scores of companies and over 120,000 employees around the world.
In addition to being the founder of HWAW, Peter is also the co-founder of Spartanburg Interfaith Hospitality Network (SPIHN), and serves on the Board of Directors for Corporate Chaplains of America.
A proud father of four children, Peter inspires family, friends, employees, and colleagues to care for those who are less fortunate, and to "love your neighbor as yourself."
