Ben Land

Senior Account Manager

 

ABOUT THE ROLE

Ben is the main point of contact for clients in BC – his primary function is to help our clients plan a campaign that meets their objectives. Another large part of this role is to help spread the REC Media brand to those who haven’t yet heard of us. So when not meeting with clients and planning campaigns, you might find him hosting a hole at an industry golf tournament we’ve sponsored or preparing for a presentation to a brand new client.

ABOUT BEN

Ben grew up in the northern prairies of Saskatchewan wearing cross-country skis more often than shoes for 6 months of the year.  This turned into Southern Ontario and Toronto for High School and University, where cycling of all types took the place of a proper ski season.  Today Ben loves living in Kitsilano, BC where he discovered a much warmer version of “the misery sticks” in Stand Up Paddling.  All the power and agility; without the frost-bite and crashes!  Having broken his arm, hip, and leg on skateboards at ages 12, 26 and, cough, 39 (zero sympathy on that last one) Ben now finds low-impact sports to be more exciting - and conducive to his happy marriage.

A PICTURE IS WORTH 1000 WORDS...BUT EXPLAIN THE PICTURE IN 100 WORDS OR LESS

My two favorite things: paddling and family.  Looking at this picture I can feel the glide and balance of a perfect stroke - and smell the perfect stink of those tiny little shoes which were her favorite back then … which makes my eyes get all misty, *sniff* … cause of the stink.
