Dallas-based Pariveda Solutions Inc. announced that Margaret Rogers has been appointed chief executive officer by the company’s board of directors.
Pariveda is a consulting firm that specializes in solving complex business and technology problems.
In her new role, Rogers will report directly to Pariveda’s board of directors. Her appointment immediately activates the company’s succession transition plan and Rogers’ effective start date as CEO will be mid-2023.
She succeeds company founder Bruce Ballengee as CEO.
“We’ve been planning succession for a new CEO for several years and selected Margaret Rogers based on a variety of factors, including a strong vision for our firm, alignment with our mission and values, and the ability to enhance our culture. We are grateful to Bruce Ballengee for founding Pariveda in 2003 and leading our firm for two decades, astutely growing while retaining its purpose and mission to develop people towards their highest potential by solving our clients’ most pressing business and technology problems,” board chair Ed Fikse said in a statement.
Most recently, Rogers was a leader of Pariveda’s Delivery Excellence team and has passionately energized many operational and client-facing roles at the company for the past eight years.
A ‘people-first’ leader
“I am honored, humbled, and grateful to be selected to lead Pariveda and continue our journey together,” Rogers said in a statement. “Pariveda puts people at the center of our business model by growing them towards their highest potential, which benefits our clients through high-value delivery. Our company is designed to be resilient and adaptive, making us uniquely qualified to solve the most complex and chaotic challenges our clients will face in the coming years. We will continue diversifying our services through our talented and innovative people, partners, and customers while staying true to our mission and values.”
Balengee said he was happy with the board’s selection.
“I am delighted our board selected Margaret as our new CEO, reinforcing our human-centric culture,” Ballengee said in a statement. “I look forward to Margaret’s people-first, human-centered leadership approach, keeping our mission and purpose at the center of all we do. Margaret is a phenomenal executive leader who will bring tremendous value to our organization from day one as our CEO.”
Ballengee will remain with Pariveda in various supporting roles, including serving on the board, the company said. Rogers and Ballengee will work together in the coming months to ensure a smooth and successful transition, Pariveda said.
