About John Rogers, Jr.
In 1983, at the age of 24, John founded Ariel with an investment philosophy grounded in patience, discipline and independent thinking. Twenty-six years later, his original philosophy still guides Ariel. As chief investment officer, John is the lead portfolio manager for the Ariel Fund and the Ariel Appreciation Fund, as well as the firm's small, small/mid and mid-cap institutional portfolios. Beyond Ariel, John serves as a corporate board member of three public companies: Aon Corporation, Exelon Corporation and McDonald's Corporation. His civic mindedness is reflected in his roles as a director of the Chicago Urban League, a trustee of the University of Chicago, as well as a member of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. In 2008, John's commitment to the community was recognized when he was awarded Princeton's highest honor, the Woodrow Wilson Award, bestowed annually on a graduate whose career embodies a commitment to national service. Following the election of President Obama, John served as co-chair for the Presidential Inaugural Committee 2009. He received an AB in economics in 1980 from Princeton University where he was also captain of the Varsity Basketball Team.
