Before joining Redstone in 2018, Ben worked for the Glide Foundation, San Francisco’s largest wrap-around social services provider. Ben grew Glide’s corporate partnerships to record levels and helped many of Glide’s programs quantify their goals and impact. Ben received an MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management, where he learned how to employ business practices to advance philanthropic strategies. He spent his internship in New Zealand, working to rebuild and rethink components of the education sector following several devastating earthquakes. Ben received a BA from Cornell University, majoring in history and graduating cum laude. Ben launched his career in the wine industry, developing sales and marketing strategies for dozens of wineries in California. As an avid yogi, runner, biker, skier, bluegrass lover, and dog-owner, Ben is thrilled to call Colorado home (even if he is perpetuating stereotypes).
