Johnny Farley has reached 10 years of service in his two tours of duty with Rogers Group Inc. He originally started with RGI driving a haul truck before moving into fixed plant maintenance.
In April of 2004, Johnny left RGI and became a Tennessee State Trooper for 11 years, where he was part of the Special Investigation Unit investigating fatalities and other tragic motor incidences across Middle Tennessee. In December of 2014, Johnny returned to RGI and became a Foreman at REO Stone Quarry, then promoted to Plant Manager at REO Stone. Johnny went on to be Plant Manager of Cross Plains Quarry. Johnny’s career track was taking him towards becoming an Area Production Manager position when, with administrative persuasion, he instead chose to transition into safety and ultimately serve as the Director of Safety and Health position leading all Safety and Health activities across Rogers Group.
Johnny’s experience as a state trooper and his experience from the “ground up” at Rogers Group makes him uniquely qualified for his position. Johnny manages 11 Safety and Health professionals across the company, the highest performing safety team across our industry. Johnny’s personal commitment and his drive every day is for Rogers Group to reach a Zero Injury Safety Culture without Compromise.
Please join me in congratulating Johnny on his 10 years of service.
