“Mr. Rogers and Ms. Minehan have distinguished themselves as leaders in their respective areas,” MITRE President and CEO Alfred Grasso said. “The insights Mr. Rogers brings to MITRE from his experience in cybersecurity and intelligence will strengthen our ability to serve the public interest and our sponsors.”
“We are privileged to welcome Ms. Minehan back to the board,” Grasso said. “Her strong background in business and management will be enormously valuable in supporting MITRE’s mission.”
A former member of Congress, Rogers represented Michigan’s eighth congressional district for 14 years. He was a member of the Energy and Commerce Committee and also chaired the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. While chairman of the HPSCI, Rogers oversaw a budget of $70 billion that provided funding to the nation’s 17 intelligence agencies and collaborated with the Senate Intelligence Committee to include provisions in the fiscal 2013 intelligence authorization bill to crack down on national security leaks.
Prior to serving as a member of Congress, Rogers was an officer in the U.S. Army and an FBI special agent. He also held a seat in the Michigan State Senate. He founded the Mike Rogers Center for Intelligence and Global Affairs, which works as part of the Global Digital Challenge Initiative to bring together leaders in policy, business and technology to discuss issues relevant to the U.S. and the global digital economy.
