Profiles of Leadership: Peter Bernhardt


McDonald Hopkins is proud to share that Peter Bernhardt, the leader of our West Palm Beach office, has been featured on the cover of Country Club Living Palm Beach North magazine.

Get to know more about Peter in the "Profiles of Leadership" cover story, an excerpt of which is below.

Like so many of us, Peter Bernhardt found his love of sports from his family. His parents took their love of sports and instilled it in him at a young age, sharing their passion and formulating a bond over it.

That’s about the only part of Peter’s story, though, that’s “traditional”.

Peter’s mother was from Liechtenstein and so, instead of growing up playing traditional American sports, Bernhardt’s mom introduced him to the world of skiing and tennis. Bernhardt’s father swam for the University of Oklahoma, so they introduced him to the world of swimming as well.

“My mom was an avid snow skier and tennis player,” Peter explained. “Starting at age 4 or 5 we combined visits to my grandmother in Liechtenstein with yearly ski trips to Switzerland. Because of my father’s love of the pool, my mother also introduced me to swimming at about the same age and had me join a swim team.”

While Peter’s mom and dad were getting him into swimming, skiing, and tennis, it was Peter’s grandfather who introduced him to golf, with a little help from a golfing buddy.

“My grandfather (father’s side) was an avid golfer,” Bernhardt added. “He was friendly with Art Wall (’59 Masters) and my first golf lesson was with Art.”
