Peter Arbuckle

Peter Arbuckle

Principal

Peter first came to the Baja for a vacation in 2005 and, like so many others, soon fell in love with the natural beauty of the region and the simplicity of its people. He and his partner, Karen, purchased property in 2007 and built their Pescadero home in 2009.

Peter’s a self-confessed ‘Type A’ personality and with their home finished he began to look further afield for activities to keep him occupied. With the ‘maturing’ of the Los Cabos area, a new highway to Pescadero/Todos Santos an improving economy in the US and the aging of the baby boom generation in ‘anglo’ North America the notion that there would be growing demand for a simple, well planned and affordable recreational development in Pescadero began to emerge. Therein lay the beginning of the genesis of Pueblo Pescadero.

For more than 35 years Peter has been involved in all aspects of the development of real estate projects. He has advised clients on developments of all sizes and uses in Canada, the United States, Asia and the Middle East. He has held numerous executive positions in companies in North America and was the Managing Director of a development Company in Dubai (1991-1996) where he oversaw the development of the largest mixed- use project (100,000 square meters of retail, office and hotel) developed in the region to that point in time.

‘It has always been my belief that while developments need to respond to a market demand, they can do so in a manner that is conscientious of the broader needs of the community – I’d like to think we’ve managed, in some small way, to achieve this at Pueblo Pescadero.

Peter was raised in Vancouver, Canada and is a graduate of the University of British Columbia holding a Bachelor of Commerce degree with a specialty in Urban Land Economics.

Mark Catania

Mark Catania

Principal

Sales and business development has been Mark’s background dating back to the early 90’s. A principal in the start up and launch of a consumer branded product, responsibilities included all facets of product development from material sourcing, manufacturing, packaging design to securing retail and wholesale distribution through selected Canadian and U.S. major mass merchandisers.

The entrepreneurial background lead to Canon Canada Inc. recruiting Mark’s services to provide a key roll in restructuring of one of Canon’s business divisions. With a mandate to bring internal business divisions together as well as securing and coordinating strategic alliances. This lead to one of the largest hardware/software and services contracts the business unit had secured to date at that time.

Mark’s love and interest in all things Mexico dates back to the late 80’s. A scuba diving excursion to the Yucatan was the genesis of his interest and love of the country, culture and people that has lasted 25+ years.

In 2008 while on a 12 month “road trip” sabbatical, Baja was discovered. The combination of Baja’s climate, geography and proximity to major North American cities made the decision to relocate to the Baja a easy one.

Developing a “Vacation Rental Services” company based in Pescadero over the past 5 years has provided an in depth knowledge of the local real estate market as well as what travelers and vacationers to the area are looking for in a recreational home.

Mark was raised in Toronto, Canada and is a graduate of the Seneca College Business program. He returns home for a couple of months each summer to see family, friends and his sailboat.
