Ben has been working in the savings product team for the Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank since around 2006. Now heading up the team, he has had first hand experience of the business challenges created by events from the credit crunch to the Brexit vote. Alongside this Ben has been a trustee for the Theatre Royal Wakefield from 2009 to November 2016, chairing the finance and general purposes committee through a period of immense change for the funding for the arts.
Outside work Ben is married with three children, who all make sure he has little time for anything else.
