Roger is in charge of all aspects of sales, business development and account management for Scotland. His primary focus is to meet and build long-term partnerships with introducers, trade bodies and businesses where innovation plays a central role. Government support for innovation has never been so high, nor so necessary; it is Roger’s aim to raise awareness of the HMRC R&D scheme even further and uncover new opportunities to monetise R&D qualifying activity for businesses of all sizes and sectors.
For over 20 years Roger has been working in sales and business development across the financial services and technology sectors. Having started his corporate career in Edinburgh, he has since worked in New York, London, mainland Europe and the Middle East before returning full-circle to Edinburgh. He has a passion for developing relationships, collaborating and enabling businesses to grow profitably. Whilst Sales Director – Middle East at Copart Inc. (NASDAQ: CPRT), he spearheaded game-changing technology across the region, allowing customers to improve their operational efficiency, process transparency and even profitability. He played a pivotal role in securing strategic partnerships followed by the creation of cross-functional teams to ensure first-class service delivery. Having repatriated to Edinburgh in 2016, Roger has worked with and consulted for a number of innovative businesses, and by joining Amplifi Solutions in 2020, hopes to harness innovation further by ensuring existing and new clients take full advantage of the Government’s flagship R&D scheme.
Music and travelling with his wife and two children. Plus all things golf; playing (even at his age there’s always room for improvement!) and growing the game, particularly by engaging the younger generation.
