Peter DeArmond, the Fella in Charge at Kern Delta Communications, was born and raised in Kern County. His family roots go back over 100 years in this area.
“The company name is inspired, in part, by the place where I grew up, at one time one of the richest ecosystems in America,” Peter says, referring to the Kern River Delta. “And yes, part of the name is inspired by the fourth letter of the Greek alphabet, delta, which represents change in mathematics. A big part of my business is about facilitating change. Right, enough play on words!”
Why he’s doing this business: “For many years I was a journalist, and from that career I developed a fascination with the process of human communication — or perhaps I should say miscommunication, misunderstandings and conflict. I felt both inspired and compelled to start a business that is focused on repairing relationships, beginning with interpersonal communication skills, the foundation of which is understanding personality types. Building toward that, I spent six years directing the training and business development programs at the Weill Institute. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Organizational Behavior and a Master of Science in Training and Performance Improvement. I'm a certified facilitator in Real Colors from the National Curriculum and Training Institute, and, yes, I love riding horses!” There's more scandalous bio information here.
