John Rogerson, Trustee

A die-hard Yorkshireman, after education at Barnsley Grammar School and Leicester University, John spent his first 3 years of employment working for HMRC [IR] subsequently progressing by a circuitous route to working in the shoe trade.

This affair with footwear has lasted until the present day, and has involved all managerial positions, from Buyer through to Main Board Director. In these positions reports have included Design and Development, Sourcing, Manufacture, Supply and Retail on a global scale.

The last 10 years have involved working with Brands, primarily in the UK, and manufacturing in several Indian factories in Tamil Nadu.

Experience gained throughout this career path has enabled John to cast a critical and objective eye over Business issues that regularly arise in current day business activities.
