Tuwisha D. Rogers is a creative problem solver. She is currently the vice president of client services for EGAMI Consulting Group Inc. and enjoys creating inspirational and inventive ideas for people who want to grow their business. Prior to her current job, Rogers was public relations manager to Randal Pinkett, Ph.D., CEO of BCT Partners LLC and a 2005 winner of NBC’s The Apprentice television show. Rogers credits Pinkett with teaching her valuable lessons on leadership, management style and teamwork, which she practices today.
Rogers also worked as an account supervisor who managed the Microsoft Bing and Target accounts for Translation, a Manhattan company owned by advertising executive Steve Stoute. “It was under Stoute’s mentorship and tutelage that I discovered how to be a creative problem solver. He encouraged and challenged my strategic and creative thinking and taught me how to not limit my ideas to one-dimensional lateral thinking, but to develop three-dimensional visions instead,” she says.
Rogers graduated from two New Jersey schools: William Paterson University with a bachelor’s degree in marketing and Kean University with a master’s in public administration —urban studies. Her first job after college was with Verizon in Newark, N.J., where she met colleagues Evelyn Jones and Brenda Francis who became valued supporters. “They taught me so much, from how to invest my 401(K) to how to appropriately dress and handle senior management,” Rogers recalls. “They were my village and I was the child. They are still part of my life today, providing pearls of wisdom that keep me grounded.”
Rogers is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., Central Jersey Chapter, serving as a Delta Gems Mentor; a past communications chair for the New York chapter of the National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communications; and developmental chair on the board of Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan New Jersey.
