Peter Aceto is a globally recognized and respected business leader and a change agent for leadership. Peter’s goal is to inspire unconventional thinking and transparency that deliver unparalleled results for employees, consumers and business.
His career with Tangerine (formerly ING DIRECT) began in Canada over eighteen years ago as a founding member of its senior leadership team. Prior to his current appointment as President and CEO in 2008, Peter held the posts of Chief Risk Officer, Chief of Staff and Chief Lending Officer at ING DIRECT in the US where he worked for nearly eight years.
Peter’s leadership shapes the foundation of success for Tangerine where a high level of employee engagement is achieved, innovation is required, and client obsession is demanded. This relentless focus has yielded outstanding results for Tangerine, its employees and clients and proved particularly instrumental in the $3.1 billion acquisition of ING DIRECT by Scotiabank in 2012.
Peter is the author of WEOLOGY: How everyone wins when we comes before me. All proceeds from the sale of Weology and related speaking engagements are donated to Tangerine supported charitable organizations.

Peter is frequently featured in The Globe and Mail, Harvard Business Review, Forbes and Huffington Post.

The IABC Toronto Chapter recognized Peter as its Communicator of the Year in 2010. In addition, Peter was awarded the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee award for his contribution to Canada’s leadership as a digital nation and for his contribution to his community.
Peter achieved his Bachelor of Law degree in 1994 from Western University, where he also earned his undergraduate degree in Psychology. Peter is involved with numerous charities including Covenant House and Mount Sinai Hospital. He lives in Toronto with his wife and three children.
