​District 6 Highway Maintenance Manager Peter Sinkler has been moving up the ranks since he began his career with PennDOT a dozen years ago as a Temporary Winter Maintenance Operator in Chester County. Since then, Pete has worked in four of the five counties in District 6.

In 2015, he pursued an opportunity as an RPT1 and worked his way up to District Highway Maintenance Manager where he helped develop and implement the Sectional Cycle Maintenance program while establishing several maintenance contracts. Pete has an extensive business background and operates his own landscaping company and recording studio which has helped him develop the skills needed to succeed at PennDOT.

Pete comes from the prominent Elkins-Sinkler-Widener families. His family helped start the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company and Standard Oil Company, which was one of the first to convert oil to gasoline. The Elkins Art Collection is still displayed in the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which is estimated to be worth over $65 million.

Apart from his work, Pete loves traveling, golfing, producing his son's music in his home studio and spending time with his girlfriend and her daughter who plays softball for Rutgers University. Pete says he enjoys watching all Philly sports, especially Eagles' games with friends. His favorite vacation spot is Aruba and aspires to travel the world.
