About

Peter Janis, Exit-Plan’s President and CEO has been an active player in the business community for over 40 years. His vast experience encompasses all areas of business from concept to reality. He has conducted hundreds of workshops around the globe, has been published in a wide range of magazines, co-chaired several organizations and has received numerous industry accolades. His broad knowledge and unique ability to see the ‘pot holes’ that lay ahead has helped guide him throughout his career, culminating in the growth and eventual sale of Radial Engineering Ltd. in 2018, a company that exceeded $20m in revenues with offices in Canada and the United States, warehousing in Europe and sales to over 60 countries around the globe.

Peter is not alone. Exit-Plan makes available a team of experts in disciplines such as finance, human resources, operational management, executive recruitment, marketing, web design and social media along with exceptional relationships with the banking, legal and M&A community.

Today, Peter lives in Vancouver’s lower mainland with his wife Carla and their dog Nero.

“Over the last 35 years of running and growing my manufacturing business, I’ve found there are “book smart” business consultants, and “real world, I’ve done this and lived this”  business consultants. Peter is the latter; he knows what businesses go through and the challenges they face as they grow their business.  Peter is the real deal, and by far, the best person I’ve worked with on my business.  His drive and enthusiasm are contagious. If he was a product sold on Amazon, I’d give him 5 stars!”
