Willie Peters

National Sales, Marketing and Relationships Manager

Willie Peters is Deppro’s National Sales, Marketing and Relationships Manager. Willie enjoyed a highly successful career in the NRL where he played for the St George Illawarra Dragons and the South Sydney Rabbitohs as well as a stint in English Super League for Wigan. During his football career Wille developed his business and marketing skills and became marketing manager for a leading wholesale and retail flower grower. Willie then moved into corporate sponsorship management and joined the successful corporate sales team at the South Sydney Rabbitohs. Willie was a contributing factor in the amazing off field turn around at that club where they emerged from a significant loss to post a considerable profit and became the only Sydney based NRL club to run a profitable organisation at that time, doing so without any supporting grant from a Leagues Club.

Willie’s sales philosophy is based around the fundamental foundation of nurturing good, solid relationships with clients and forming on-going, mutually benefiting and rewarding partnerships.

Willie maintains an interest in Rugby League today and has turned his hand to coaching junior representative teams in the South Sydney district.
