Ben’s project experience includes desktop audits, lease audits, outstanding reconciliation reviews, and real estate tax analysis.
Ben started his professional career as a finance associate with a local commercial bank. Ben’s experience within this role involved general ledger management, journal entry posting, daily reconciliation processing, discrepancy analysis, and accounts payable. Ben then shifted his career path, leaving his banking role for a financial services role. Most recently, Ben worked for a global custody services firm in a fund administration and trade processing role, while also performing internal audit functions. While working on his degree, Ben also gained experience working as a leasing agent.
Outside of the office, Ben gets most of his enjoyment out of planning outdoor adventures with his dog Booga. Ben also loves cooking for others, discovering new music, and skateboarding in his free time.
