William H. Rogers (18 February 1914 – 26 July 2008) was an English architect. His most notable building was 20 Fenchurch Street in the City of London, which was occupied by Kleinwort Benson from 1968 to 2006.[1]

At the time of his death, the building was in the process of being demolished to make way for a new landmark skyscraper nicknamed the Walkie Talkie.

The first building he designed in the City was at 15-16 Basinghall Street.[2] He was Chief Architect of the City of London Real Property Company, which later became part of Land Securities.[3]
