Roger worked directly for Sir Richard Branson at Virgin on new ideas and deals working on a range of businesses across the Group. He was then made Commercial Director of the media group and worked on the sale of Virgin Records to EMI, the launch of Virgin Radio, the rapid growth and sale of Virgin Interactive Entertainment, to name but a few incredible developments he worked on.

Roger joined British Airways during the $1bn dirty-tricks lawsuit claim by Virgin; he was there during the CEO transition from Lord Colin Marshall to Bob Ayling and the aggressive expansion strategy, a strike, the launch of Go and the launch of fabulous new First and Club World products. Roger drove a transformational strategy to reconstruct the GBP 1.2bn distribution value chain, launched electronic ticketing and ba.com with a simultaneous launch in 72 countries in the world.

Roger joined Prudential immediately after the GBP 2bn pensions miss-selling scandal to run the UK Retail business. He drove a major business transformation including the launch of new products, new distribution channels, a £200m CRM programme and an innovative new sales process. As part of this transformation he led an exhilarating and exhausting culture change for the 7,000 staff.

Becoming part of the BBC as Chief Executive of the commercial media services group and a member of the Executive Team working with Greg Dyke during one of the most eventful times in BBC history; the launch of Freeview, the battles with Sky, the rejuvenation of BBC1, the fight with the UK Government and the BBC wide culture change that made the staff cry when Greg left. Roger created 3 businesses from the BBC’s back office functions with 4,500 staff and transformed them into commercial businesses, grew revenues rapidly, dramatically changed the customer focus, launched internationally and drove a series of product innovations. The ultimate sale of two of the businesses created over GBP 1bn of value for the BBC.

Roger is now an investor and Chairman of a number of private equity backed businesses in the Media and Technology sector, an established well-respected business person, with unique experience in strategy, leading cultural change, risk and innovation. His experience makes him a highly sought-after speaker on the circuit.
