Meet Ben, a people-focused, service-driven industry ace with over 20 years of experience. Throughout his career, his primary focus has been to help clients use benefits as a key component of their Total Rewards offerings, aligning with the organization’s objectives to recruit and retain a talented workforce. Ben’s daily role finds him regularly working to help clients understand the ongoing complexities of the Affordable Care Act, and how changes to healthcare policy could affect them. In addition, he works closely with his teammates to coordinate ongoing client support and annual renewals.

Ben is a Certified Employee Benefit Specialist (CEBS) through Wharton School of Business and is licensed in the State of Michigan for life, accident and health.

Prior to joining Rose Street Advisors, Ben spent nearly 18 years as a human resources and benefits consultant with Kushner & Company. With a degree in Human Resources from Central Michigan University, he holds a unique perspective and benefits expertise for organizations of all sizes and sectors.

When he’s not strategizing with clients, you’ll find Ben spending time with his wife and dogs, reading, watching television, playing with his car, golfing, sailing or volunteering. Very committed to giving back to their community, Ben and his wife volunteer alongside their therapy dog, Red, at Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan. Ben is also involved with the Kalamazoo Human Resource Management Association (KHRMA), the Michigan Maritime Museum and is a member of the Board and HR Committee Chair for the Portage Community Center.
