VT KnowledgeWorks in Blacksburg has expanded its Presidents’ Councils to Roanoke with the appointment of Ken Ferris as moderator. Presidents’ Councils are private networks of experienced executives working together to increase energy, share insight, reduce risk and improve leadership skills.
Ferris is a serial entrepreneur with more than 30 years of experience which has included being on the founding team of three technology start-up companies, each of which was sold to a large, publicly traded company. He is past president and on the board of the Roanoke Blacksburg Technology Council (RBTC).
Since 1994 Presidents' Council has provided its members with the time, atmosphere and structure to become more effective leaders. VT KnowledgeWorks is home to two Presidents’ Councils in the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center.
