Derek Taylor, former Rogers Group CEO, passes away

We are deeply saddened by the news of the demise of Mr. Derek Taylor, former CEO of the Rogers Group, on the 9th of February 2021. 

 

Derek was a force of nature, as all those who have had the privilege to work with him will recall. Since taking the helm of the Rogers Group in 1984 and until his retirement in 1999, he drove constant innovation while maintaining efficiency within the group.

 

Over the years, he was instrumental in reshaping Rogers and reinforcing a performance-driven culture across multiple sectors that ranged from aviation, commerce, engineering, hospitality, international and financial services, to retail and shipping.

 

Afterwards, he served on the Rogers board, until September 2001, demonstrating strong business flair and humane qualities.

 

The Rogers family conveys their deepest condolences to Derek’s family. He will be forever remembered as a visionary leader who greatly contributed to creating the Rogers of today.
