Rodrick Meyer was born in the Pacific coastal city of Eureka, California, and is a graduate of Stanford University's School of Engineering. There he majored in Industrial Engineering with a focus on Organizational Management, and was a four-year member of their successful Varsity Baseball team. A Major League Baseball Draft selection by the San Diego Padres in 1993, he returned to school instead of entering professional baseball and completed his degree in four years.
Soon after graduation in the summer of 1994, Rod joined SAP America's consulting force in the Western US Region as a Logistics Supply Chain Consultant. He spent the first six years of his career working with several strategic accounts, notably Microsoft, Intel and Hewlett Packard. Then when a chance arrived to be on the leadership team of a $400 million Supply Chain Program at Nike, he jumped at the opportunity.
After two years at Nike, he ventured off to start his own consulting firm specializing in SAP implementations and integration. For the next 17 years, he continued as a hard-driven project leader on many large SAP initiatives across several industries in the US, Europe and Asia. With clients spanning the Fashion, Footwear, Consumer Products, Medical Devices and Industrial Manufacturing industries, Rod has built and leveraged wholesale, retail and e- commerce best business practices across the entire IT ecosystem. Currently, his focus is UX and Business Process design for European Retail stores utilizing SAP's new web technology, Fiori.
When not traveling on the road serving his business clients, Rod resides in Portland, Oregon, where he enjoys his garden with partner Sarah Cruse, and playing the Hammond B3 organ in the local music scene.
