Josh Rogers leads the non-profit NewTown Macon, where he works to attract, leverage and invest in self-sustaining transformation for downtown Macon, Georgia. Over his career, Rogers has become an innovator in using real estate to spark and sustain revitalization in communities desperate for reinvestment. One of Rogers’ signature abilities is to use market forces to cause revitalization, especially by investing directly in real estate development in non-profit-owned projects. Part of these strategies include infrastructure and programming, where Rogers has led such projects as reviving Macon’s soap box derby and installing the world’s largest pop-up bike lane network. Rogers resides in a historic home in downtown Macon with his wife, Meaghan and two young children, Jack and Ellie.
