Ted Rogers….A Visionary That Can’t Be Replaced

The passing of Ted Rogers, founder of Rogers Communications, is a blow not only to the corporation but to Canada as he was a corporate icon that cannot be replicated.

He took on immeasurable risk to build a media giant that would surpass BCE and Telus. He did a great job buying media properties or building them from scratch and then buying content like the Toronto Blue Jays to increase the profitabilty of his organization.

His model was very similar to that created by Ted Turner, the founder of CNN and TBS as well as the owner of the Atlanta Braves. I look at Mr. Rogers in the same light as Steven Jobs from Apple or Bill Gates from Microsoft. There are very few entrepreneurs that have made suck an impact. He will be missed by many.
