He has 15 years of experience recruiting for IT, software development, and engineering in Portland for more than 300+ companies. “I found that if I can understand the values of the company and its leaders and align those with the candidate’s values, that tends to make a significant difference in finding the right fit for both parties.” Ben is a connector who believes in building authentic relationships. For him, partnering with people throughout the interview process is the most fulfilling part of the job. Ben is married with three kids and lives in Lake Oswego.
