Peter Burman

President EF CORPORATE SOLUTIONS

I am a business professional with 18 years’ of international experience gained from a variety of cross-functional, leadership roles in private education companies such as EF Education First and My Academy. My career and education has taken me to many parts of the world, including Chile, the USA, South Africa, Spain, and of course Sweden; a journey that has helped form my passion and belief in international learning and the importance of educating the new ‘global citizen’.

Fresh out of university, I started my career with a dream of becoming a professional golfer and joined the Scandinavian (Telia) Golf Tour. But in 1996 reality hit home which led me to my first ‘proper job’ as Product Specialist for Neurosurgical products at Johnson & Johnson.

In 1999, I joined EF Education First in Sweden to develop travel abroad language programs, and after just a year was promoted to run part of the business in South America, based in Chile, and subsequently Boston, USA.

In 2004 I was appointed worldwide President for EF’s B2B division, supplying language training for companies, governments, schools and Universities, which I ran until the fall of 2011. I then spent 15 months as CEO for Sweden’s leading home tutoring company My Academy, before returning to EF earlier this year.

My wife Yvonne and I have 3 children currently at the Swedish school, this being our second period in London; the first was from 2009-2011.

The Swedish school is one of the reasons we enjoy living in London and it would be an honour to join the board of this wonderful institution.
