As co-founder of Ampersand, Roger continues his quest to promote free markets, producing uncommon growth using uncommon means.

After an early career on the launch teams for the IBM Personal Computer and Accenture’s Change Management practice, Roger co-founded VIA and built a global strategy firm. He met his future partners Todd McCullough, Michael Croton and Henry King at VIA, where they first practiced the principles of transformative innovation.

Roger guided strategy and new service design for Ernst & Young, and formulated business plans for former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s consulting and investment firm. He led global accounts for innovation strategy firm Doblin Group, and led commercial strategy for Fahrenheit 212. HIs clients have included AC Nielsen, American Airlines, Baxter, Boston Scientific, BP, Bridgewater, Citi, Colgate-Palmolive, Ford Europe, Groupe Schneider, The Hartford, Hyatt Hotels, IBM, KPMG, Kraft, Nestlé, Procter & Gamble, Pfizer, SC Johnson, Siemens, Singapore Airlines, and Southern Company.

Roger teaches Strategic Innovation in the Interaction Design masters program at the School of Visual Arts near his home in Manhattan. You can read his mind at rogermader.com.
