Roland Roberts was born in a ranch in New England. After serving his country in the front lines of battle, Roland returned to college to finish his engineering degree on the GI bill. After receiving his degree, he was hired by General Electric to work in the Missiles & Space Division. He later served his country as a technical adviser to the Strategic Air Command in Omaha Nebraska for two years.
Roland next accepted a contract with the GE Nuclear Fuel Design program as Senior Design Engineer for Boiling Water Nuclear Power Plants. After serving under GE for 15 years, he took an early retirement to build and invest in start-up companies. He most recently retired from his position as CEO and Chairman of Trans-Pharma Pharmaceuticals after complications with his heart.
Roland has decided to pass on some of his life’s experiences for all to enjoy and perhaps compare to parallels in ones’ own life. His book “Sonny” provides more insight to his development and family from an early age and his wartime activities.
