Samuel Roberts - IR Global

Samuel Roberts

Senior Business Development Manager

What is your background and role in IR?

I joined the team in November 2012 and I am now the Senior Business Development Manager here at IR. I am part of the team tasked with developing the groups growth by identifying potential members to bring added value and support to the group and current members.

What have been your highlights since joining IR?

My first event was a huge highlight for me; it was great to meet our members face to face and play my part in hosting a very successful conference. I look forward to being involved in many more in the years to come both in the UK and abroad.

And what are your passions outside of the office?

A lot of time outside of work is spent either participating or watching sport. I captain both my current football and cricket teams which takes a lot of extra time and commitment. When I’m not playing myself I can be found ever watching my football team (Coventry City) or on the side of a field hockey pitch supporting my girlfriend.

Other than sports, I enjoy good food, good music and holidaying around the world.. but who doesn’t?!

Finally tell us something unique about yourself?

The saying ‘you never forget how to ride a bike’ isn’t correct for me... As a child many hours were spent riding my bike around my village however, much to my embarrassment, when I tried to jump back on a bike around a year ago I was absolutely useless.
