In 1999, Ben got his first job in IT working as tech support for Panda AntiVirus. Here, he quickly rose the ranks to consultant and then Technical Manager for Panda AntiVirus UK where he rolled out OEM products, establishing Panda AntiVirus as the software used by many computer manufacturers.
But Ben wasn’t content to just stay in the same role. He knew he could continue his quest to learn and grow so he accepted a position as the first paid employee at Adrem Software UK in Network Management. At Adrem, Ben honed his IT and Sales skills and led in the development of a consulting practice. With his knowledge of the business and the industry, he was asked by Adrem Worldwide to create a training video. He had a strength for translating customer challenges into solutions.
Ben moved to the states with wife in 2008 and commenced his career as a Microsoft Partner with IV4 as a Client Solutions Manager and most recently with Team Venti as a Practice Lead. In this time, he’s been asked to present at Microsoft Inspire, has sat on Partner Advisory Councils to represent the voice of the partner, and has been on national webinars. He’s now a certified Microsoft Partner Seller.
Ben’s thirst for learning and working with people, together with his extensive experience with Microsoft licensing optimization, make him a perfect fit for Aerie, where he helps our clients translate their business challenges into solutions.
