America’s leading Christian CEO forum.

Regardless of how long you’ve been a business leader, you probably still have those days when you are keenly aware of the gaps in your knowledge and experience. The challenge for many of us is that we don’t set aside time to work “on” our business rather than “in” it. We might read books, attend industry seminars or even engage consultants, but we don’t regularly schedule time to focus on big-picture issues. The C12 Group is a unique forum for Christian CEOs and business owners who are intentional about business, ministry and personal growth.

Roger Norberg

Chair

Roger spent 31 years in progressively more responsible managerial positions with General Motors before retiring as a Purchasing Director in 2003 to pursue a family business opportunity.  He worked in several operations and headquarters in roles as a change agent, implementing Lean Manufacturing Techniques in the Materials Management arena, with extensive experience in Supply Chain Planning, Logistics, and Lean Material Systems (Toyota Production System).

Roger’s personal style is reflective, insightful, orderly, flexible and friendly.  He has strong skills in visioning, leadership, team building, listening, and innovation.  He has both line and staff management experience in materials management, manufacturing operations, and purchasing.  Roger trained many people in a wide variety of lean material flow techniques.  He has a reputation for establishing understanding, facilitating issue resolution across functions, reducing costs by eliminating waste, and improving customer satisfaction.

He joined C12 in 2005 to share his lifelong love for Jesus, his professional and spiritual experience, and to exercise his consulting, coaching and facilitating skills with Christian Business Owners and CEO’s who want to pursue business God’s way.  Roger enjoys teaching Bible and Stewardship classes at his home church, facilitating church board meetings and assisting his pastor in equipping the saints for ministry.

Roger earned his Bachelor of Science in Industrial Administration from GMI (Kettering University) and his MBA from Wayne State University.

Roger recently said, “I thought C12 sounded like a good idea in 2005 when I began to explore the possibility of leading the Detroit franchise.   Now after being involved for some time, I find that it is better than I thought and gets better every month.”

Roger and his wife Cheryl reside in Waterford, Michigan.  They have five children in four states.  They raised three daughters who all graduated from Christian Colleges and serve the Lord in Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Colorado.  Their two sons will graduate from high school in 2014.
