Roger Wilson

West Midlands

Having enjoyed a long career in manufacturing after originally studying music at university, Roger believes strongly in balancing numerate, structured and logical thinking, with a creative, visual and innovative flair to provide a comprehensive approach to business issues.

Roger has a passion for photography, winning awards from the Photographic Society for portraits and street photography and this interest has recently evolved into drone videography, reflecting his continual desire to develop creative interests.

Roger has worked in the corporate sector for nearly 40 years, holding CEO and Managing Director positions in both private and public companies. He has worked in manufacturing businesses including many Consumer Durables, Engineered products, and also in a not-for-profit business as a board member for a professional Symphony Orchestra.

There is a significant international aspect to Roger’s career, having been responsible for operations in Europe, the Americas, the Middle East and (extensively) across Asia. This included a five year period living and working in the USA in both North Carolina and Chicago.

One of the most fun and rewarding aspects of Roger’s career has been the development of strong, high-performing teams. Roger has received the “Everest Award” in recognition of his constant search for better solutions, innovative products, creative designs and his enthusiastic drive to achieve results swiftly. His mantra has always centred upon the idea of collaboration, built around trust, communication and accountability.

Roger lives in Monkhopton near Bridgnorth. He has two children, Rachel, a Business Manager in London and Simon, an Operations Manager in Manchester and has been married to Rhys for 10 years. Roger enjoys spending time with family, cycling, and is currently just 8 states short of completing visits to every state in the USA.
