Ben brings finance, business startup experience, and theological training to the Camino Foundation. After graduating in 2007 with a degree in Business Finance from the University of Northern Colorado, he worked as a commercial loan underwriter with Wells Fargo. In 2008, after receiving a promotion to Collateral Auditor with the Asset Based Lending division of Wells Fargo, Ben moved to Texas and enrolled at Dallas Theological Seminary. Eventually Ben would leave Wells Fargo to focus on his education and began working in the finance department at Camino Global (then CAM International). While working at Camino, Ben helped incubate HOPE Coffee into the for profit endeavor it has become.
Through his business background, theological training, and experience with HOPE Coffee, Ben has become passionate about seeing business impact the world with the gospel for God’s glory. As a result of this passion, Ben was the catalyst for Camino Global creating the Camino Foundation in June of 2014 and has served as its president since the launch.
