Harrison Rogers: Most Influential in Valley Business and Man in the Valley 2017

Though not even 30 years of age, Harrison Rogers is a self-made millionaire and owner of multiple local businesses (Lexington LLC, an innovative educational institution that caters to Arizona’s special needs community; HYBRYD, a technology-based startup company that focuses on both home and office automation services; and LCI Realty, a real estate brokerage that focuses on commercial property management and investments). In fact, Rogers has already been a businessman—which he says takes “leadership, courage, reliability, trustworthiness and ambition”—for a decade, establishing a carpet-cleaning business at the age of 17.

“I am passionate about sharing my ideas, successes and shortcomings with others in hopes that I can give them the confi dence and guidance they need to far exceed their goals. At the end of the day, I hope my inspiration is my influence.”

Harrison was given the 40 under 40 award by the Pheonix Magazine in June 2018

For eight years, the self-made millionaire’s companies doubled in revenue annually, he says. But they grew too fast. At the end of 2016, he went through “a horrific year.” Struggling to turn his companies around, he learned valuable lessons about controlled growth that he plans to implement in his next venture: buying and selling distressed businesses.

“I want to be able to help business owners through that horrific time of their lives… and be known as the turnaround businessman,” he says.
