Digital innovation requires orchestrating talented technologists, embracing modern approaches, and balancing customer needs with complex organizational dynamics. That’s where Ben comes in. He has a track record for market-moving applications with tangible impact: A digital product that produces eight-figure annual revenue for a legal information publisher, a biological entity management system that shortens drug development time for a biotech company with 1,200 research scientists. And an eCommerce site that supports $600 million in annual online sales for one of North America’s oldest retailers—delivered in time to enable a 40% jump in sales on Black Friday.
Ben credits these types of successes to professional—and life—principles that are centered on transparency, passionate curiosity, empathy on an individual level, and pragmatic efficiency on an organizational level.
Ben joined West Monroe in 2024. Previously, he was vice president responsible for client growth and success for a global software consultancy and services firm—for which he authored the Modern Digital Organization Manifesto. He earned a degree in business/marketing from Miami University.
Ben’s a red wine enthusiast, a fan of live music, and a loyal supporter of Cleveland’s challenged sports teams. He’s also a runner who has participated in the New York City and Philadelphia marathons. While lefties represent only 10% of the population, they make up 100% of Ben’s immediate family.
Over the course of his career, he has traveled to and spent time for work in Sri Lanka, the Philippines, India, Brazil, and much of Europe.
Ben takes pride in supporting colleagues’ professional development, including helping them find opportunities to excel and grow their own capabilities.
For two decades, he has been a Rotarian—a volunteer with and member of the world’s largest service organization. He has served on his Rotary Club board for over a decade.
