In a statement, Stephen Polk, president and CEO of Southfield, Mich.,-based R.L. Polk & Co., said that Rogers’ “successful track record and extensive automotive information experience in executive and leadership roles” will aid in Polk's business and growth strategies. Rogers will start his new post on October 4, and relocate from Metro St. Louis to Metro Detroit.

“I’m extremely pleased to welcome Tim to the Polk team,” said Stephen Polk, chairman, president and CEO of R. L. Polk & Co. “His successful track record and extensive automotive information experience in executive and leadership roles will help with Polk’s business and growth strategies as we move forward.”

Rogers will relocate from St. Louis to Metro Detroit. He is excited for the new career challenge. “I look forward to the opportunity to join such a great and well-respected organization,” said Rogers. “I’m excited to work with Polk’s talented team on strategic growth initiatives and help our customers achieve their business objectives.”
