Before retiring after 35 years working in the private sector, Roger was Director and General Manager of the Falkland Islands Company Ltd for 15 years. During that time he was also Chairman of the Falkland Islands Chamber of Commerce and served on the Boards of the Falkland Islands Development Corporation and Falkland Islands Tourist Board.
In addition to his role as an MLA, he is currently Chairman of Falklands Conservation; a non-governmental, membership organisation that works in partnership with the local and international community to conserve the natural environment for future generations. It was his interest in wildlife and farming that attracted him to make his home in the Falklands. Roger is also on the Board of the Falklands YMCA.
He is a keen squash player and an ardent England and Lions rugby fan.
Roger has lead portfolio responsibility for Government Services, Legal and Regulatory Services, and has secondary portfolio responsibility for Health and Social Services.
