Roger Chester

Head of Finance and Administration, LionHeart

Roger has worked in the NFP sector since 1975. His first experience of a computer was when the local authority audit section did the conga through the computer room at a Christmas party.

He has been head of finance and administration at LionHeart since 2002. His first contact with Charity Finance was when he rigged its business card draw at the Charity Accountants Conference. Ever mindful of the state of the planet he thinks that the best computer was the abacus as it relied on a biological power supply rather than an electrical one.

In 2011 he became a special advisor to the Al-Mizan Charitable Trust. He is also the current chairman of the finance and legal group at the Association of Charity Officers and at the start of 2012 he was appointed as a trustee for the Charity Employees Benevolent Fund.

With over 20 years working in and for the charity sector, Civil Society Media has tracked the careers and mapped the successes of many of the key players in the sector. Along the way we have had contributions across our magazines and on the website from hundreds of the brightest thinkers.

Our Who's Who section therefore outlines the profiles of both the most important people you should know in the sector, and some of the most forward-thinking, that help to make civil society the unique and dynamic sector that it is.

But we want more. According to the Charity Commission, the charity sector employs 754,411 full-time equivalent staff and uses the services of an estimated 2.2 million volunteers, including more than 842,000 trustees, though there are still 21,400 trustee positions unfilled.

Every profile contains a list of the stories on civilsociety.co.uk that mention that person, as well as details of the organisation they work for.
