Get to know Ben a little better:
Why is working at a social impact-based company important to you?
I think that waking up every morning knowing that I have a chance to impact the community in a positive way was a main reason that I wanted to work here. Growing up my dad always asked me, “What have you done for the betterment of your community today?” I think that I will be able to give him better answers now.
How do you spend your free time – when you have it?
I spend a lot of time at the gym, training for a race, on the golf course, or developing new bar-b-que sauce recipes. I try and be as active as possible and keep my days full.
What’s on your playlist while you’re at work?
I have to make too many phone calls while at work to listen to music, and I do not think that I would be making successful calls while playing air guitar.
What does your perfect Saturday morning look like?
Starts with a breakfast of eggs (over medium), bacon, hash browns, avocado, and some fresh berries. It would also include putting some sort of meat in my smoker, and going to play golf or do some outdoor activity.
