Simona Rollinson
(Cook County)

Simona Rollinson was named CIO of Cook County in 2014 after three years as president of Follett Software, an education technology firm in McHenry. She is also co-owner of Kendy USA, a manufacturer of probiotic and nutritional supplements.

“I’m a strong believer that we need to make a conscientious effort to have women in businesses and governmental agencies because too many girls are not thinking about a career in technology,” she told Blue Sky.

Rollinson joined Follett in 1998, serving in a variety of roles including vice president of services and operations and director of engineering.

She holds bachelor of science degrees in computer technology from Technical University-Sofia in Bulgaria and from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, and a master of science from SIU. She is a graduate of the Chicago Management Institute at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
