Rogers Group has entered its fourth generation of family ownership with Ben L. Rechter, great-grandson of company founder Ralph Rogers, being elected as chairman of the board of directors.
Ben, son of former Rogers Group President and board member Ben R. Rechter, has served Rogers' board for many years during his long career in the construction materials industry. As a former member of Rogers Group management, he held many positions and was instrumental in the integration and growth of the Arkansas market. Ben eventually left the day-to-day management of Rogers Group to start Arch Materials, which has recently completed a major underground limestone mine development project in Cincinnati.
