Background

Ben joined Redstone after receiving his MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management. As an economics major with a social impact pathway, he learned how to utilize business tools to solve pressing social issues, particularly in the public and environmental sectors. He spent his internship in New Zealand, working to rebuild and rethink components of the education sector following several devastating earthquakes.

Prior to Kellogg, Ben worked for the Glide Foundation, one of San Francisco’s largest social services providers. Ben worked in corporate development, where he grew corporations’ financial and strategic contributions to record levels. Ben was also immersed in Glide’s services, co-leading development of the free legal clinic, and helping many programs incorporate better impact metrics that led to increased performance and funding streams.

As an avid yogi, runner, biker, skier, bluegrass lover, and to-be dog-owner, Ben is thrilled now to call Boulder home (even if he is perpetuating stereotypes).
