Alex Rogers is founder and president of CharTec, a “beyond HaaS” provider that helps technology companies transition to the next level of annuity-based profitability as managed service providers (MSPs). CharTec evolved from Rogers’ experience as CEO of ARRC Technology, his award-winning, multimillion dollar MSP practice that he founded in 1992 with a $300 investment. The company designed and built the largest MSP training facility in North America, and created a HaaS program to provide custom hardware at no upfront cost to its partner base of nearly 1,000 companies. CharTec has been recognized by numerous industry publications as an innovative vendor in 2011 and 2012, and the company’s HaaS offering as a top product in 2010 and 2011. Rogers is an ardent contributor to the IT channel and is widely viewed as a revolutionary thinker.
