Mr. Mike Rogers

Chairman since 2021; Board Member since 2016

Mike Rogers is chairman of the Board of Trustees for MITRE. Rogers is a nationally recognized leader and adviser on emerging technologies, geopolitics, and cybersecurity.

Rogers is a former member of Congress, representing Michigan’s 8th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives, where he chaired the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI). As chairman, he authorized and oversaw a $70 billion budget that provided funding to the country's 17 intelligence agencies, including a large portion of the national security space architecture.

In Congress, Rogers worked across the aisle with two presidents, Congressional leadership, countless diplomats, military service members, and intelligence professionals to ensure the brave men and women who fight for our nation are equipped with the resources necessary to get the job done. Washington Post columnist David Ignatius remarked, Rogers was "a rare example of bipartisanship."

Today, Rogers advises C-suite executives, providing analysis and expertise on the challenges facing companies operating in the digital era, and on cybersecurity and executive leadership. He serves as a director at leading companies including IAP, IronNet Cybersecurity, and Constella Intelligence. He serves as chair of 5G Action Now, founded to establish the United States as the worldwide leader in 5G, and serves on the Board of Directors of Leadership to Ensure the American Dream (LEAD). He is currently investing in and helping build companies that are developing solutions for healthcare, energy efficiency and communications challenges. 

Rogers is a Senior Fellow at Harvard University and a member of the Board of Trustees and the David Abshire Chair at the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress, where he directs the Center’s national security programs, including the National Security Space Program that aims to identify ways in which new and emerging commercial space can be better integrated into the existing architecture.

Rogers is a public speaker on global affairs, cybersecurity, and leadership. He serves as a regular national security commentator on CNN and hosted the channel’s documentary-style original series Declassified, which offered viewers insights into America’s spy stories.

He is married to Kristi Rogers and has two children.
