Biography

John “Jay” Rogers is President, CEO, and Co-Founder of Local Motors, a next-generation car company that is changing the way cars are designed, built, and owned. Founded less than 4 years ago, Local Motors is home to over 60,000 car design concepts, 17,000 community members, 30 full time employees, 1 production vehicle, the Rally Fighter, and one vehicle co-created for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Local Motors is the first automotive co-creation community, and the first company to produce an open source vehicle.

Jay Rogers grew up a lover of cars and a student of the industry; his grandfather owned the legendary Indian Motorcycle Company and was the first Cummins Engine Distributor in the United States. His rides have included a 1991 BMW 535, 1971 Mercedes 300SL, a 1996 Dodge Viper R/T10, 1994 Chevrolet 1500 with hydraulic dump-bed, a 2002 Honda Element, and now he drives a 1971 Mercedes 280SL and a Rally Fighter. His family and passion inspired a most ambitious plan: Exciting, efficient vehicles designed through open source then built locally in a sustainable manner with customer participation.

Mr. Rogers went from Princeton University to a startup in China and then to Ewing & Partners where he became a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA). After, he went on to the US Marine Corps where he served for 9 years, and to Harvard Business School, then to McKinsey & Co. He has been crafting Local Motors since his time in the Marine Corps. He also serves as the Chief Investment Officer and director of the RBR Foundation, a philanthropic foundation focused on education and healthcare.

Jay Rogers has spoken on the topics of game changing innovation and co-creation at BIF, PopTech, TedX Phoenix, Picnic in Amsterdam, Do Conference in Wales, and many more. Additionally, the story of American innovation, co-creation and Local Motors has been shared on PBS, Fox, CNBC, and Speed Channel. The business and Rally Fighter have also been featured in Popular Mechanics, Popular Science, Wired, Top Gear, AutoWeek, Inc., Details, and others.

Jay Rogers lives in Phoenix, Arizona with his wife and four sons. Visit him and Local Motors—you can help design, develop, and build the next great American car.
