Rodger Keesee, CSO
Rodger founded Kinetix in 2004 to solve the serious business issue of hourly billing in the face of technology’s growing complexity and the need for a comprehensive IT strategy in growing organizations. The core mission and philosophy of the company arose from Rodger’s frustrations; he dealt with many IT support companies whose incentives were not aligned with his, who were learning on his dime and who did not provide the big-picture strategy and planning that high-growth companies require. As Chief Service Officer, Rodger is dedicated to solving those problems for clients, maintaining the company’s very high client retention rate, and setting a new service standard for the IT support industry.
Prior to founding Kinetix, Rodger was Vice President of Technology for a venture-backed global enterprise software company, where he led large, multinational software development teams to build and continuously improve the company’s core technology product.

Mark was driven to Kinetix by his frustrations with the traditional IT support companies he had worked with throughout his career. He sought a place where the client’s best interests were in his best interests, and found that at Kinetix.
