Ben was formally a Chartered Accountant with extensive project management experience prior to becoming involved with Unit4 Business World software. Ben led the search and selection for a new ERP solution for Buro Happold, a professional services company based in Bath. After Buro Happold, Ben went on to develop a proven track record in U4BW project delivery with excellent grasp of the product and its capability.

Ben is a great team player and leader, has excellent communication skills, is a great listener and has a deep rooted understanding of what makes great a customer experience.
