Charlotte Center City Partners’ Board of Directors has selected Pat Rodgers, President & CEO of Rodgers as the recipient of the 2014 Vision Award. The award is intended to recognize and celebrate the contributions of a community leader whose efforts have made the Center City a more vibrant urban core.
Pat Rodgers has successfully led Rodgers for 27 years to become one of the top contractors in the nation. Rodgers Builders was established in 1963 by Pat’s husband, engineer B. D. Rodgers. The company’s mission is to build buildings with purpose, to build relationships with integrity, to build people who lead, and to build community with care.
Rodgers has successfully completed at least 30 projects in the Center City footprint; including the Knight Theater and Wells Fargo auditorium, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art and Mint Museum Uptown at the Levine Cultural Campus; the Foundation for the Carolinas corporate headquarters, Johnson and Wales’ academic building, the nearly completed BB&T Ballpark, ImaginOn, NC Dance Theatre and the list goes on.
Pat Rodgers’ energy, business acumen and leadership have enhanced a wide variety of organizations far beyond her company. She has served as chair of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, and chaired or served on more than a dozen boards, ranging from the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra and Mint Museums to the Carolinas Chapter of The Associated General Contractors of America. Rodgers has been honored with the Charlotte Business Journal’s Business Person of the Year award and their Lifetime Achievement award.
