One of Ben’s grandfathers was a volunteer firefighter and auto mechanic while the other traveled the world working for Illinois Tool Works (ITW). Both of these men were influential in nurturing an admiration of firefighting and manufacturing. Ben’s father, a professional golfer, also inspired a unique sense of leadership and teamwork.
Today, Ben combines these influences to save lives and protect property. In partnership with a team of Territory Sales Managers, he works to promote innovative tools that solve major problems facing fire departments like yours.
Ben holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Valparaiso University where he played quarterback for the Division 1 FCS program. He also earned his Firefighter I/II certification in District 1 of Northwest Indiana and was a member of the Washington Township VFD.
