Hodson began his career in 1976 working as a group finance director for Unigate PLC, a dairy company. After leaving the company in 1988, he worked for a year as the chairman and chief executive of the Davidson Pearce Group PLC, before moving on to be the deputy chief executive and finance director of Nationwide Building Society, a post he held until 1992.

From 1993 until 1998, he worked as the chief executive of LIFFE, a tumultuous time for the exchange which lost one its key futures contacts during his post there. LIFFE lost its market share in Bund futures to the all-electronic German exchange DTB in 1997 and 1998. That historic event in the futures industry, which marked the only time a key benchmark product ever moved from one exchange to another, forced LIFFE to move from a floor-based to a fully-electronic market.

In 1998, he stepped down from LIFFE and moved on to become professor of commerce at Gresham University. During this period, he served as a non-executive director for the post office from 1984 until 1995. After leaving his job as professor of commerce at Gresham University in 2002, he worked as governor of a number of schools in the UK, and served as a chairman and non-executive director for a number of companies.

Work for the Leave Campaign

In late 2015, Hodson began serving as the chairman of The City for Britain, a pro-Brexit outreach group, and as a director on the affiliated Vote Leave campaign.
