Leadership Team

Jay Rogers


John B. Rogers, Jr. is the CEO and co-founder of Local Motors parent company, LM Industries. Under Rogers’ direction and vision, it is on a quest to redefine the rapid development of connected hardware by pairing advanced manufacturing with open innovation tools for the future of mobility. Transportation has always been a passion for Rogers and he has consistently pushed the boundaries of the industry with the world’s first co-created vehicle, the world’s first 3-D printed car, and the world’s first autonomous cognitive shuttle, Olli. That being said, Rogers has also been outspoken about how the automotive industry needs to adapt and change. Olli is the latest manifestation of Rogers’ commitment to creating the solutions a more sustainable tomorrow requires. A graduate of Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Rogers holds a Masters in Business Administration from Harvard Business School (Baker Scholar).

Vikrant Aggarwal


Vikrant brings with him more than 20 years of automotive and industrial experience, managing and growing successful global businesses. This expertise has been critical in leading Local Motors to achieve its customer-focused goals. Vikrant’s extensive global experience – both living in and working with companies around the world – is helping to strengthen Local Motors’ key efforts to increase the efficiency of internal processes, scale the company’s customer base to global markets, enhance ongoing relationships, and lead the industry as a whole towards a brighter future.

Bob de Kruyff

VP, Engineering

Bob brings vast automotive engineering and product management experience to Local Motors. He has been involved in almost all aspects of vehicle engineering and product release during his many years with General Motors, including international experience as Director of Engineering for GM Japan, responsible for joint ventures with major Japanese automobile manufacturers. Cars are Bob’s hobby, as well as the center point of his professional career. People, process, and product are what drives him and his efforts to shape the engineering team to develop Olli as a first-class vehicle for today and the future. Bob feels strongly that the passion of the vehicle reflects the passion of the team that created it.
