Rogers, John B. Jr | Local Motors

President, CEO and Co-Founder
Local Motors

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. Local Motors is the first automotive co-creation community, and the first company to produce an open source vehicle, the Rally Fighter. In 2011, Local Motors facilitated the co-creation of a military vehicle for DARPA called the XC2V.

The automotive industry is in Roger’s blood; his grandfather owned the legendary Indian Motorcycle Co. He grew up loving cars and developed Local Motors by way of Princeton University, US Marine Corps and the Harvard Business School.
