Roger Marsden’s blog

Head of Retirement Solutions Products and Services

Roger is Head of Retirement Solutions Products and Services, a team that designs and delivers products and services that meet the changing needs of people approaching and in retirement. Roger has worked for Aviva for over 10 years where he has held several roles across the business.

He is driven by the At Retirement vision to ‘change the way people retire for the better for ever’. He is a strong advocate of promoting and providing education to the public to fill the knowledge gap that, for many, means retirement is not optimised.

Away from Aviva he is married (but not to other blogger Alexandra Marsden!), has two children and a dog. He enjoys cycling, holidays, wine and is a proud but long suffering Sunderland fan.
