Carlos Rodriguez – President and CEO, ADP
Carlos Rodriguez was named President and Chief Executive Officer in 2011, making him ADP’s sixth CEO since its 1949 founding.
Under his leadership, the company has accelerated its transition from payroll processor to Human Capital Management services provider with a comprehensive “hire-to-retire” portfolio, including benefits administration. It has also nearly doubled the number of clients using its cloud-based services. And its Professional Employer Organization (PEO) business has nearly doubled the number of client employees served, putting it on par with the nation’s largest employers.
After joining ADP in 1999 through its acquisition of Vincam, Carlos held a series of positions with increasing responsibilities before becoming CEO. He served initially as CFO for a short period before becoming President of ADP TotalSource. Under his leadership, TotalSource became the fastest-growing and largest PEO in the industry.
He also served as President of the National Account Services and Employer Services International divisions, which serve large companies, and spent several years as President of the Small Business Services (SBS) division. While in that role he oversaw the launch of the cloud-based “RUN Powered by ADP®” payroll management service.
