Peter Bailet



Managing Director

“We need to continue creating awareness of these parks and encourage residents and visitors alike to get out and play.”

Peter grew up in the Boston area and spent many days enjoying the outdoors from Cape Cod to the Berkshire Mountains. Now a resident of Jacksonville for over 25 years, he has explored many of the parks and natural resources within our community and knows we have something very special right here.

Peter earned his undergraduate degree in business from U Mass and attended Northwestern University for graduate studies. He pursued a career in corporate finance. His professional experience covers a wide-range, working at both Fortune 500 and start-up companies. Currently, he sits on the Board and is Managing Director of a local private equity company, with a portfolio of real estate holdings and small businesses. Away from the office, he enjoys the outdoors, sailing and music. He also has participated in the Take Stock in Children program in the Duval County schools.
