Ben’s tenacious commitment to our clients’ prosperity rightfully makes him the namesake and founder of our firm. Decades of industry experience and a nuanced understanding of the capital markets make him well-equipped to be our Chief Investment Officer.

Ben oversees the composition of our clients’ portfolios and drives the strategic direction of our firm’s growth. He also authors a monthly business column for the Star Tribune and has received accolades from the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, and Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.

Ben volunteers regularly with Minnetonka High School’s Vantage Professional Studies Program, as a mentor, a Shark Tank judge, and guest instructor, teaching students financial literacy.

A silent sports advocate, he is passionate about creating opportunities for healthy outdoor activities, especially for our younger generation. An avid off-road cyclist and cross-country skier, Ben spends summers training for the Chequamegon Fat Tire bike race and winters training for the American Birkebeiner ski race.

He and his wife Brenda enjoy traveling and spending holidays with their three adult children and daughter-in-law at their family cabin on Lake Namakagon.
