Rodney Rogers

Rodney Rogers has been a well recognized thought leader and successful entrepreneur in the Information Technology Services industry for over 22 years. Rodney was formerly the co-founder, Chairman and CEO of Adjoined Consulting. Adjoined was known as the fastest growing U.S.-based IT Services company from its inception through its acquisition by Kanbay in 2006.

Rodney then became COO of Kanbay, a 7,000 person global IT Services firm which was subsequently acquired by Capgemini (Paris: CAP) in 2007. As such, Adjoined set the bar for private U.S-based IT Services value creation in the post-2000 era. Rodney was recognized on Kennedy Research’s global list of “Top 25 Most Influential Consultants” and was a finalist for the Ernst & Young “Entrepreneur of the Year” award along with Adjoined being recognized on the PWC/Entrepreneur U.S. “Hot 100” list (ranked #9 across all industries) prior to its sale.

Rodney then co-founded Virtustream in 2008 and is Chairman and CEO. Virtustream’s xStream platform is the first true consumption-based hybrid Cloud provisioning platform capable of providing guaranteed computing resources suitable for supporting mission-critical enterprise class application workloads. Virtustream complements its xStream platform with Cloud advisory/integration services and application managed services.

As a lead-operator and entrepreneur, Rodney has raised over $150 million in venture capital for the companies that he has developed to-date. Rodney is also non-Executive Chairman of Teliris, the #2 provider of telepresence solutions worldwide, and a Board member of UnitedLex, a leading India-based Knowledge Process Outsourcer and Greensmith, an emerging leader in distributed energy storage software technology.
