A recovering corporate banker at ATB, Ben is a self-professed business nerd, passionate about building relationships and communities.

This passion is now being put to work in the equally venerable industry of forestry. A strong believer in conservation, social responsibility and sustainable solutions he is excited to participate in an industry which continues to seek ways to lead in terms of innovations that further these same values.

In his spare time, Ben seeks to lend his time to people and organizations that align with his community based focus and that seek to emphasize compassion, courage and integrity in all that they do. In turn, he is a steadfast proponent of effective governance as the foundation upon which organizations can most effectively express their values and achieve success.

When not working and volunteering, he enjoys cycling, reading, movies, travel, eating, and football (both kinds).  He has served on the board of the McKay Métis Group since 2020.
