Directors & Advisors

Nancy Peterson
Founder, CEO & Chairman

Nancy discovered how daunting and costly home projects could be when she got married and bought a new home. After several months of renovations, her key takeaway was that 'who you hired' was the single biggest factor in a great outcome. At the time, there was only word-of-mouth. She founded HomeStars in 2006 to aggregate real reviews - the first site in Canada to create a community of homeowners who could help each other hire right. Prior to launching HomeStars, Nancy spent 13 years marketing world-class brands in Europe and North America, first with P&G, and then Kraft Foods. She enjoys playing tennis, mentoring young people, and spending time with her two boys at various hockey rinks.
