He rose through the ranks over the years and spent time heading up the field side of the Mission Critical Group before relocating to New York to lead the office.

With over 20 years of industry experience, Ben has been instrumental in providing strategic leadership and insight toward the implementation of Clune’s objectives and market growth.
