Peter Casselman (

Peter Casselman grew up in Massachusetts, spending much of his childhood mucking about in boats on Buzzards Bay.  Fascinated by anything mechanical, he rebuilt his first outboard motor at the age of twelve to power the nutshell pram he had built with his brother and father.  Throughout high school and college, he repaired automobiles at a small shop specializing in European sports cars, where he honed his problem-solving abilities.  In 2006, Peter moved to Vermont and joined the Bibens Ace team as a sales associate at the Colchester location, where he found his niche in the marine department.  From 2011 to 2015, he managed the Burlington location before returning to Colchester.  Peter is a true believer in the value of the neighborhood hardware store, and strives to ensure that Bibens always is The Helpful Place.  He resides in Georgia, Vermont with his wife and their animals.
