Peter Degnian

Peter Degnian started working at Chave’s on New Year’s Day in 1984, picking orders on the sales floor. Within six months, the young bloke was given an opportunity to sell some rockmelons and before we knew it we had a superstar salesman on our hands.

Since then, “Degsie” has dedicated himself to sourcing and supplying the best quality rockmelons, honeydew melons and watermelons in the country. For nearly 30 years, he has built very strong relationships with many loyal customers who rely upon his encyclopaedia-like understanding of melons to help them make the best purchasing decision for their requirements.

We consider Peter’s passion, knowledge and work ethic to be the benchmark for salesmen in our industry and he’s without question an irreplaceable member of the Alfred E Chave family.

We also want to recognise Peter’s dedication to surf life saving in his spare time. In fact, he’s as passionate about surf life saving as he is about marketing melons and has served as the club captain of Mermaid Beach SLSC for the last five years.
