My name is Pete and I am the President and Founder of ActionsProve, LLC

For more than two decades I was a successful and accomplished professional civil engineer, consultant, executive, and major firm owner.  I also spent more than a dozen years alongside designing and implementing a variety of essential infrastructure, education, enterprise, and community development projects in the service sector that produced true impact and changed lives.

Today, I help leaders of AEC firms stay relevant and effective, and help their organizations to grow and prosper in this new era.


I am about helping AEC firm leaders and leadership teams take action to prove who you want to be both individually and organizationally.

Why ActionsProve?

Times have truly changed, both for individuals and for organizations.  As leaders, we need a new plan and a new strategy.  To achieve success in this new era we must:

  • Step up and take more control over the direction of our future,
  • Have a more compelling vision,
  • Excel in ways that both engage and inspire,
  • Design for greater impact and differentiation,
  • Take new action to standout in the today’s very different and always evolving workplace, marketplace and recruiting space, and
  • Know that our actions are aligned with our ultimate goals.


The status quo is not a winning strategy and the cost of inaction, especially today, is just too great!

Whether you are looking to enhance your current operations, refresh, or pivot in a new direction, my goal is to position you to succeed.


We help you succeed through:

Strategic Planning & Advisory | Leadership & Management Team Development

Executive Masterminding & Coaching | New Era Employee Engagement | Differentiated Impact Design

“What makes me different?

I am a doer, not just a thinker.  I am about real impact and growth, not just an experience.”

-Peter C. Atherton
