Chief Technology Officer
As one of the company’s founding partners (which is why we don’t call him a nerd to his face), Ben is the CTO as well as the architect and builder of Level5’s entire technology platform. He is also the creator of all customized platforms for our clients, and the director of all internal and external technology.
After earning his BS in Computer Science at Arizona State in 1995, Ben started an accounting software and security company called NetWorth, which he and his partners took public in 2003. Needing to fulfill his restless affinity for puzzle-solving and the ongoing challenge of always finding the next best ways to use IT to make businesses more competitive, he decided to sell the company in 2007 to redirect his focus more to the technical side of IT. Born the following year, Level5 Management is Ben’s fanaticism for business IT manifested.
Always infatuated with figuring out and developing the fastest, easiest, most exceptional and most efficient possible way of doing things, Ben threw himself into creating our unique automated IT Monitoring Platform, which has changed the way our clients view IT and eliminated the need to go to client’s offices for most issues – solving the problem of the interrupted workday.
Like most nerds, he spends a good portion of his spare time researching and buying new technology (seriously… for enjoyment) and playing video games with his sons. He does try and squeeze some time in for his wife, who is obviously a saint. Ben admits his greatest flaw is not understanding fashion faux pas. He often mixes prints and non-matching colors.
Ben is a member of the Ascii group, TechTribe, BNI, and the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce, as well as the winner of several Microsoft awards, His favorite quote is, “If you need inspiring words, don’t do it.“ (Elon Musk)
