Roger Beard

From Apprentice to Managing Director

By Dulcie Adams

In these audio clips, Roger Beard talks to John Davis about his career at Fielding & Platt. 

Roger started working for the company as an apprentice in 1957 and gained an HNC in both electrical and mechanical engineering during his training.  He spent the majority (35 years) of his working life with the company and eventually became Managing Director.  Quite an achievement.
