Sophie Rodgers has joined the research team that serves Crain’s Chicago Business and sister publications in three cities.
Rodgers comes to Crain’s from investment firm William Blair, where she did research for investment bankers and analysts.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s in library and information sciences with a concentration in competitive intelligence at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In graduate school, Rodgers did research internships with John Deere, the Business Intelligence Group and State Farm Insurance.
At Crain’s, Rodgers will be part of the team that researches and creates the award-winning lists that give Crain’s readers exclusive insights into the city’s business scene—everything from our list of Chicago’s largest privately held companies to the biggest foundations to the largest law firms.
“We are delighted to welcome someone with Sophie’s experience and expertise to our multicity research team,” said Crain’s Editor Ann Dwyer.
