Ben began his career in multi-family property management in 2000 after graduating Summa Cum Laude with a BA degree in Business Administration. Starting in 2004 and over the next 7 years he held manager and regional manager positions in the non-profit affordable housing arena. Ben had oversight of HUD Section 8 senior buildings in addition to several large supportive housing properties utilizing LIHTC and HOME funding combined with Section 8 subsidy targeting special populations. Ben held the lead management position for an urban $12 million tax credit rehab project and the construction, lease-up, and management setup of a “first of its kind” affordable assisted living building. His partnership with local social service agencies was key to achieving stability in the lives of hundreds of residents, particularly those formerly homeless.
In 2012, Ben took a senior living consultant position with a national healthcare services & housing provider. He proved influential in developing creative strategies at large retirement communities to improve outcomes and resident satisfaction. Ben implemented a comprehensive policy and procedure manual across his portfolios and provided daily operations support for housing and services. He was responsible for manager training and mentorship, financial planning, turning around struggling service lines, and regulatory compliance of assisted living facilities and independent living buildings across the country.
With over two decades in property management with a specialized focus on senior populations and needs across the spectrum, Ben is an exciting addition to CCI’s leadership team.
