Ben’s tenacious commitment to our clients’ prosperity rightfully makes him the namesake and founder of our firm. While most of us are still asleep, Ben is busy chipping icicles off his eyebrows from 6AM bike rides on his fat tire Surly. If that sounds like commitment, you should see him at the office. Ben has 35 years of wealth management experience and is the most successful member of our team, but still works like he has the most to prove. Our clients have noticed. When Marks Group launched in 2008, we had a 96% client retention rate.
Ben writes 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. He is frequently interviewed by local news reporters and quoted in the Business section for his insight on financial markets.
When he saves time for himself, Ben enjoys studying architectural design and cherishes time spent with his wife Brenda and their three children at the family cabin on Lake Namakagon.
