Roger D. Herzler, MBA
Information Technology Professional

Roger in San DiegoIntroduction
Thank you for visiting my professional networking website. Please allow me to introduce myself if we haven't met already. I'm passionate about all topics of leadership, especially in the scope of Information Technology.

My philosophy
I'm a firm believer in the concept of 'servant leadership'. I believe it's important for a leader to serve their team, to help them grow, and to learn from them on a daily basis. It is through this service that the leader ultimately becomes successful, because their team is successful.

My roles
My experience, education and preparation has given me the skill-set to be successful in these types of roles:

  • Software Quality Assurance Manager, QA Lead or Sr. QA Engineer
  • IT Director
  • Application Development Manager
  • Project Manager
  • Product Manager

My experience
I have over 15 years in the Information Technology space, starting as a computer software technical support representative on the phones and progressing to lead diverse teams. I participate in software quality assurance testing, project management, budgeting and all types of planning and management tasks related to IT projects. I have held a variety of roles in IT and software development departments with a focus on product quality. I have participated at all levels in the software product requirements gathering process and performed project managment tasks.

My education
I have a BS in Business Administration with an emphasis in High Technology Management (MIS) and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA), both from the California State University in San Marcos, California. Subjects of my education include:

  • Team leadership
  • Information technology topics
  • Data collection and analytics
  • Cost, expense, revenue and profit analysis
  • Market and customer research
  • Marketing campaigns
  • Project management
  • Strategy development and implementation
  • Competitor research and analysis

Additionally, in recognition for my service to the students and faculty during the MBA program, I was awarded the inaugural "Outstanding Service and Leadership Award".

My community involvement
I continue to be engaged with my alma mater as the President of the MBA Chapter of the Alumni Association.

Public speaking
I volunteer to speak publically on the topics of leadership, information technology, social media, speaking in public (tutorials) and ethics. Please contact me to arrange for public speaking opportunities! It would be a pleasure to speak to your classroom or group on any of these topics.

I strive to continue my growth in IT and in leadership roles. My passions for leadership and IT co-mingle into a successful mix, so that I am highly effective at getting results and exceeding stakeholder expectations. I strongly believe that technology, when properly implemented, can make peoples' lives more fulfilling all while improving the business' bottom-line.

Please connect with me - I look forward to networking with you!
