The Group

Who We Are

Vicci Rodgers started the firm in 1987 after she struck a deal with her employer, Borg-Warner Corporation, to work as a contract consultant when virtually the entire sizable communication staff was eliminated. The transition wasn’t difficult, because for the last few years at Borg-Warner she worked with the division heads, counseling them on strategic use of communication to meet their goals. Vicci picked up ongoing consulting jobs from companies that Borg-Warner spun off. Those managers knew her, and her work. The result: The Rodgers Group, Ltd.

Over 25 years later, we continue to operate with minimal overhead, meeting the needs of a broad spectrum of clients. A team of senior-level consultants, with a variety of specialties, join forces to meet specific client communication needs. We often are called on to serve as a functioning communication “staff” for clients who require additional resources for a specific period of time. A few of those team members are listed here. Other team members prefer to remain in hiding, but are locked and loaded … ready to be called upon at a moment’s notice. When you work with The Rodgers Group, you can count on adding the best in the business to your team.
