Ben thinks big. He loves thinking of the future and being a part of improving the connectivity of the community. Every day is exciting when collaborating with great people to develop innovative design solutions to save taxpayers big money and keep them safe.

Ben established his 12-year career working for MnDOT gaining valuable experience in roadway design, traffic safety, construction, water resources, and materials, including 5 years leading a roadway design squad. Ben then worked at WSP for 2 years on MnDOT design-build projects and county projects. Since 2016, Ben has managed transportation projects for Sambatek.

As Client Service Manager in Sambatek’s Transportation Division, Ben delivers quality services for MnDOT, Met Council, and counties with a team focused on quality and consistency. Ben enjoys finding solutions to complex issues, and empowering teams to exceed expectations.

Outside of work, he enjoys getting outdoors and playing disc golf, exploring the Metro Area, or playing at parks with his 2 and 4 year old children. When indoors, Ben likes to read and still squeeze in a bit of video gaming.
