Peer Synergy Group - Founder & CEO


Roger S.
Blackstock
Founder & CEO

It is rare when a single individual’s outstanding achievements are recognized in parallel careers, both as corporate executive leader and distinguished military commander. Roger Blackstock leads, speaks and teaches from his experience as a successful corporate executive, in world-class companies such as Eastman Kodak and as United States Army Green Beret Officer and Jump Master, retiring at the rank of Colonel in 2001 after 30 years of both active and reserve service. Unlike some who simply “talk leadership,” Roger has been there and is the passionate expression of dedicated expertise.

Roger helps organizations to realize the full potential of their most valuable asset - their people. His skills as a senior-level business leader and adviser enabled him to lead sales teams to top national recognition honors. As a battalion commander and then later as a brigade commander, his visionary leadership ignited changes that reversed the reputation and readiness of these organizations from bottom tier units to top performing commands. Through his unique ability to quickly discern organizational culture and alignment issues and his understanding of leadership, vision, values, and goals, Roger helps companies create dynamic cultures and stellar reputations that drive organizational results for competitive advantage. Roger is also a certified instructor for Herrmann International’s (HBDI) Whole Brain Thinking Programs and Connexus Solutions Organizational Culture and Emotional Intelligence Assessments.

Roger holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Presbyterian College and is a graduate of the U.S. Army Officers’ Advanced Course, the U.S. Army Command & General Staff College, the U.S. Army War College, and is a recipient of the United States Army’s Legion of Merit.

In his community Roger is very active as a servant leader. He is an ordained deacon and member of Parkway Presbyterian Church. Within his church, Roger founded Parkway Business Network, which assists individuals in job transition. In this volunteer role, Roger has instructed and coached hundreds of individuals to better understand themselves and gain the confidence to successfully plan their job search to secure new job opportunities. He is an Adult Leader for Boy Scout Troop 39, and serves as a Unit Commissioner for the Etowah District, Boy Scouts of America. Roger is also a member of the Reserve Officers Association, the American Society for Training and Development, and an Associate Member of the National Speakers’ Association of Georgia.

As a guest speaker across the southeast, Roger addresses audiences on numerous Leadership, Culture, and Personal Performance topics including: Leadership Trends for the 21st Century, What is Transitional Leadership and Why You Must Master It, Operation TEA (Thoughts – Emotions – Attitude) for Success, and Blackstock’s Bullets…Applying Military Principles to Win the Business War.
