Ben is an accomplished leader and business executive with 25 years of experience across strategy, operations, sales, marketing, innovation and financial management.  He is currently a senior leader at Cummins, a global power technology organisation where he holds Board director roles in New Zealand, Australia and Singapore.  Ben was also previously a Director of the Australian Investors Association.

Ben has experience in successful collaboration with teams, stakeholders, and community partners and is passionate about innovation, diversity, and effective governance in organisations.

He is also a keen equities and property investor and advocate for financial literacy and strong corporate governance.

As a passionate investor and advocate for enhancing financial literacy Ben is excited about the opportunity to contribute his skills, experience, and expertise to help the Australia Shareholders Association achieve its goals.

He is particularly drawn to the Australian Shareholders Association’s mission to educate and advocate for individual investors.  Provision of quality independent financial advice, he believes, is a rarity with many organisations offering biased advice.
