“Ariel is the right person to take over as president,” says Rogers. “I am confident she will steer Resource Data into the future while maintaining our mission and values.”

After nearly twenty-five years as Resource Data’s president, Rogers is choosing to phase into retirement. He will remain with the company to support Gibson as a resource of historical
knowledge and as a mentor and will serve on the board of directors.

“She has a strong business education, extensive experience working with large firms, and has occupied a senior role within Resource Data long enough to truly understand our culture and how the business works,” Rogers adds.

Resource Data is a custom software company with offices in Anchorage and Juneau, as well as Boise, Idaho; Portland, Oregon; and Houston, Texas.

“I’m looking forward to working with Ariel in her new role as president,” says Diane Thompson, Anchorage branch manager and board member. “I have complete confidence that she will lead the company wisely, ensuring we adhere to our culture and values while continuing our tradition of excellence.”
