Director of Strategic Sales at Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Roger was born in Belfast in 1975 and was raised in a council estate in Coleraine before eventually leaving NI to study Politics in Glasgow.

Since then he’s lived and worked all over the world for telecom titans, tech-startups and even found the time to do an MBA before taking up his current role with Amazon today.


In this episode Roger talks about:

  • Losing his dad at a young age
  • How visiting Hong Kong changed his life
  • Why he set up the New York City Northern Ireland Football Supporters Club
  • Having dinner with the Australian Prime Minister
  • And why the Harbour Bar in Portrush is his favourite place in the world
