In 1979 Mr. Roller joined one of his CPA firmís clients, Sage Foods, as their assistant controller.

Mr. Roller was named Sageís Controller in 1982, and their Vice President of Accounting in 1992. He remained with Sage, and its successor company, for 25 years prior to joining Montclair Hotel Investors in 2005.

He oversees the accounting, insurance, human resources, and IT areas for Montclair.

Mr. Roller resides in Arlington Heights, Illinois with his wife, who is also a CPA.
