Chief Advisor, Office of the CEO
A proven leader with an engineering background Ben is passionate about cutting through red tape and getting to solutions. Ben built one of the first 100 apps on the iPhone App Store and leveraged that experience to build one of the top mobile development firms in the country which was acquired by WPP in 2014, Double Encore. Post-acquisition Ben was able to more than triple the gross revenue, departing in 2019. The apps Ben worked on were for top brands in the App Store including the NBA, March Madness Live, Pokémon TV, the PGA TOUR, JetBlue Airlines, Major League Soccer, and Chewy to name a few. Ben assisted many of these brands to have features ready for key announcements from technology partners such as Apple and Google. Solutions started on phones but quickly evolved into experiences in the living room on set-top devices, wearables, and tablets.
When he's not solving problems you can find Ben spending time with his Wife, Danielle and their 2 sons. Ben is also a huge Phish fan and if they're on tour you'll likely find him there.
