Roger Carter is the Managing Director of Carter Construction (Derby) Ltd, where he joined his father, Geoff Carter, after completing an Honours Degree in Building Services Engineering at Liverpool University, in 1985. Initially as Contracts Manager, but MD since 1995, and sole in charge since 2003. During this time, Carter Construction have completed many and varied projects, from Housing Estates to large Industrial Units, Sports, Leisure and Retail Contracts, and many Schools Projects.
During this time, we have regularly employed many apprentices of all trades, many of whom are still with, or have returned to, the Company. Education and Training has always been a significant part of my career, and we are proud to have given so many young people a 1st Opportunity in Construction.
I am married to Julie, with 2 daughters – Jess at Birmingham University and Daisy, currently doing GCSE’s, and I am very aware of the need to support and encourage education, across the whole spectrum.
I was Chairman at Belper Hockey for many years, helping the Men’s Club to achieve Premier League status in the English National League. Currently not playing, I am a Level 2 Umpire for the Midlands Region
I love my lovely family, Hockey, Skiing and Liverpool Football Club
