After seven years of tackling management chores for one of the most powerful men in government, John F.W. Rogers is going to do the same for one of Washington's most prominent companies.
Rogers, 31, will become group vice president for operations for The Oliver Carr Co., the commercial real estate and development firm, on Jan. 3. He has been a top aide to James A. Baker III since 1981, when Baker was White House chief of staff; he now works under Baker as assistant secretary of the Treasury for management.
The transition to the bottom-line orientation of the private sector might intimidate most people who had worked almost exclusively in the federal bureaucracy, but Rogers said in an interview that he isn't fazed. He said his government duties -- which have included everything from restoring the Treasury building to supervising medal design -- require nitty-gritty skills that he expects to put to good use when he joins Oliver Carr.
"Operations is where I'm going, and operations is where I've been," said Rogers, a 1978 graduate of George Washington University.
At Oliver Carr, Rogers will be responsible for managing the company's buildings and properties, its food-service operations and its car-park operations. At the Treasury, he has handled a wide range of administrative and budgetary matters, including the department's efforts to solve severe management and computer problems at the Internal Revenue Service. He also beefed up the Treasury's internal controls and financial management systems.
"The private sector's gain is definitely our loss," said Baker, who brought Rogers with him to the Treasury when he became secretary in February 1985. "I've worked closely with John Rogers for the past seven years and cannot begin to express how much he will be missed."
At the White House, Rogers was assistant to the president for management and administration, and before that he had an operations job at the American Enterprise Institute. Asked what attracted him to Oliver Carr, he replied: "Two things. One was the quality of their undertakings; second was their sense of community -- that they add something to the landscape, not detract from it."
The best-known example of those attributes, Rogers said, is the company's restoration of the Willard Hotel, which he described as "the jewel of Pennsylvania Avenue."
"But take some of their newer buildings -- Presidential Plaza, and Republic Place," he said. "They stand in stark contrast to the usual concrete edifices that you see so often in Washington."
