Vice President, Operations
ABOUT THE ROLE
Ben’s role can easily be summed up by saying that his hands touch everything that leaves our doors. He is responsible for leading and directing the administration and operations teams. Ben plays the gloomy realist to Troy’s enthusiastic planning.
With such an important and often stressful role, it’s no surprise that Ben has a calm, cool and collected demeanor and a great sense of humor. Ben is also quite competitive and injury prone…two things that don’t typically go together well. A few years ago, Ben severely broke his leg while playing a “friendly” game of soccer with a group of children at a picnic. Ben’s love of travel has taken him all over the world, including several trips to South America and his personal favorite, Madagascar. No word on whether he liked the place or the movie better. Ben lives on Vancouver Island - the small town life suits him perfectly. He also loves all things baseball: playing, watching and allegedly dominating his fantasy leagues.
A PICTURE IS WORTH 1000 WORDS...BUT EXPLAIN THE PICTURE IN 100 WORDS OR LESS
I come from a small town where pitching in is what’s expected. As a member of the fire department, I am provided the opportunity to give back to my community – and it provides a pretty good adrenalin rush at times too! I’ve been fortunate enough to experience some pretty extreme situations, and to build some life-long friendships through my department.
