Roderick Buchanan has been at the British Museum Company since 2008. Prior to this, Roderick spent his working life at Tesco, starting at school as a Saturday job working his way up through stores and then spending the last eight years in head office working in different areas from change management, to supply chain, commercial and distribution. This experience was invaluable for joining the British Museum Company. Since 2009 The British Museum Company retail profit has increased three fold and is continuing to grow. This has been achieved against the backdrop of recession and has been made possible by adapting and continually improving the offer for visitors.
