Before joining The Ripple Pond Rodger was Head of Operations for Thrive, a charity that provides Social and Therapeutic Horticulture.
Rodger’s first career was with the Army serving with 29 Commando Regiment, before moving on to the police for almost 30 years. On retiring from the police he went on to work for both The Royal British Legion and SAFFA.
He is dedicated to serving the Armed Forces Community and making a real positive difference to peoples’ lives.
Rodger’s role as the Director is multi-layered, including working with the Board of Trustee to develop and implement strategy, managing the day-to-day running of the charity and making sure that the services we provide meet our members’ needs.
Out of work, Rodger spends his time focused on – family, dogs, a seemingly never-ending list of “household jobs” and a love of the arts and military history.
