Peter R. Beaumont

Independent Consultant/Entrepreneur

Dr. Peter Beaumont is a veterinarian and entrepreneur living in New Jersey, though he still maintains strong ties to the UK where he grew up, and consequently has been known to be churlish on Independence Day. He was a very early investor in Trupanion and a board member until 2015. Additionally he is currently the Chairman of Trupanion’s Veterinary Advisory Board and its Independent Third Party Veterinarians claims-review panel.

He has over 30 years’ experience as a principal, operator, investor and board member in various service businesses, in both the UK and USA, as well as having been a practicing veterinarian and AAHA practice owner for many of those years. He is also a published author of both veterinary science and veterinary business articles, and was a member of the Editorial Board of the Veterinary Business Journal.

Peter has served on the boards of the New Jersey Association for Biomedical Research, the New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association, Veterinary Practice Initiatives Ltd., Pizza Systems Inc., Vetmark Inc., Pet Angel Inc., and Veterinary Business Development Ltd, as well as being a member of the IACUC of Sandoz/Novartis. He is presently on the board of Mediproductions SAS.

His veterinary education was received from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and the University of Pennsylvania and he gained an MBA from New York University’s Stern Business School; he is a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, the AVMA and the Association of Corporate Directors.

Peter has five children, and owns a high-spirited, and fairly badly-trained dog called Henry. The Beaumonts love travel and collect art and antiques.
