Prof Dr. Rodger L. DeRose is president and chief executive officer of Kessler Foundation. Under his leadership, the rehabilitation research and grant program divisions were integrated into one organization combining Kessler Medical Rehabilitation Research and Education Corporation and the Henry H. Kessler Foundation. DeRose, the Board of Trustees, and management make decisions that improve the workplace environment for its employees so they can work more effectively to change the lives of people with disabilities. As a result of these efforts and employee dedication, Kessler Foundation was named one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey by NJBIZ (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017) and one of the Best U.S. Nonprofit Organizations to Work for by The Nonprofit Times and Best Companies Group (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017).
