Management Profiles

Wayne Rogers

Wayne Rogers, President of VodaWize is a Raleigh native and graduated from UNC- Chapel Hill with a degree that prepared him for either a lucrative career in Law or Sales.  Sales required three less years of school and seems to have stuck.

Wayne has been in technology since 1981.   Over the years he has seen changes that have brought on some WOW moments and others more gradual and progressive.  What used to be considered fast is  REALLY slow by today’s standards.

Wayne founded LongLeaf Communications (now VodaWize) in 2001 with the simple idea of bringing convenient service to customers.   He found too many customers were spending too much time dealing with automated attendants or waiting in queues to speak with people who in many cases were not helpful.    His philosophy is to do everything in his power to make the customer experience positive and personal.

Wayne is a lifetime resident of Raleigh, NC and his personal motto is “…To Grow and To Serve Through Community Service and Public Service”
