Chief Operating Officer
Ben has been heavily involved in engineered solutions, designing complex systems and tailor-made manufacturing for over 25 years.
Beginning his career at Clearguard as a Senior Engineer, Ben was integral in the design, development, and implementation of a wide range of Autorodding solutions for some of the world’s largest processing companies. His milestone projects include the largest Autorodder manufactured to date (at 250cm or 98-1/2” stroke length), and the quickest return on investment (ROI) installation at five hours with 1.6 million USD additional profit for the customer.
His technical knowledge, work ethic and commercial acumen resulted in Ben’s promotion to General Manager of Clearguard. He was then appointed Vice President of Global Operations where he set up the US manufacturing and spearheaded the alliance with our local exclusive territory representatives.
Ben has spent the last four years in the USA where he regularly drives all around the states (>7,500-mile road trips!) to provide commissioning assistance to clients and deliver in-depth technical training.
He has presented numerous white papers, including at the Emerson Exchange and Texas A&M Instrumentation Symposium, and regularly attends industry conferences and events around the world.
In January 2022, Ben was promoted to Chief Operating Officer.
His hobbies include everything with an engine, music, and cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
