“I have always been fascinated by the way businesses interact with people – I think that’s why I love CPG. Food and beverages are so much more than ‘consumer staples.’ They are at the core of our health, our social lives and our heritage as people. It’s literally a joy to me to work with and for entrepreneurs who are finding ways to enhance our lifestyles, our culture, our health and our environment. Food and beverages are central to all of that.”
Prior to joining SDR, Ben worked as a corporate development analyst at a national restaurant chain where he was responsible for developing and implementing a new model for suggestive selling at franchise stores.
Ben has a Bachelor’s of Arts in Economics and Business from Cornell College. He lives in Centennial, Colorado and enjoys weightlifting and spending time with his wife and two kids.
