Peter Sims

"Chief Whip"

CEO, Parliament Inc

My story: I am originally from Colfax, CA. The thing I’m most passionate about this year is finding ways to be a better "dual citizen” in America, as someone who grew up in a small rural town, who works every day in the middle of enormous innovation in the Bay Area. Most people don't know that I have the middle name of “Eagle” which is because my family is very Californian, and because I was born in the bicentennial month and year (July 1976). My dad also didn’t want me to be Richard M. Sims IV, for which I will be forever grateful. 

Parliament came into the world after 10 years of little bets — including many setbacks and struggles and more than a few failures. What we have created is already a dream come true. It’s humbling to imagine what impact we are poised to make in the years ahead to make the world a bit more human. As my friends at Pixar say, “To infinity and beyond!”
