Pete Gratale, President and CEO

Pete received his Bachelor of Science degree in radiology technology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His business story began with co-owning and managing a single outpatient radiology imaging center. In less than six years he grew the business to include over fifteen image centers and sold the franchise to a national company.


An extraordinary benefit of growth and sale of the imaging organization was the creation of Seagate Management Company. Instead of outsourcing many of the operational needs of the imaging company, Pete's vision was to create additional partnership companies. To date, Pete leads the Seagate Management team, which currently manages the "behind the scenes" functions for over 20 companies.
