Peter Goettler, who retired from his position as Head of Debt Capital Markets and Investment Banking, Americas, at Barclays Capital in New York City in 2008, has been elected chairman of the board for the New York City – Southern New York Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Peter has been a member of the board since 2008 and chaired numerous committees including the Governance and Development Committees.

“Peter brings boundless drive and enthusiasm and I look forward to our partnership in moving the chapter forward to empower people living with MS and improving their lives,” says Robin Einbinder, chapter president.

Peter’s involvement with the chapter dates back to mid-1990s. Over the years he became more involved through his participation in the fundraising event, Bike MS NYC. He is a member of the Bike MS NYC team, Barclay’s Chain Gang, which has helped raise more than $1million for the event, the largest one-day fundraising bike ride in New York City. The funds that Peter helped raise support the comprehensive programs and services the chapter provides to more than 10,000 people in the area affected by MS. Funds also support the National MS Society’s critical research initiatives, an area that Peter has a keen interest in as his wife is living with MS.

“I am honored to continue to dedicate my energy and resources to the chapter in my new role. I am committed to the mission of creating a world free of multiple sclerosis and look forward to engaging with our constituents on an even deeper level,” says Peter.

Peter’s two-year term began on October 1, 2013 and continues through September 30, 2015. Peter resides in New Canaan, CT.

About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.
